This isn't really related to the spell checker in Dokuwiki, but Safari uses OS X's built in Spell Checker for input boxes on web sites.

Thanks for the offer! I'm very interested in Mac (Safari) compatibility reports. I don't own a Mac so I'm dependend on feedback.

My mac is at home; so I can just test out of work time; will have a go tonight.

Could you check if
the Spellchecker works with UTF-8 chars in Safari? Should do
but checking is
better ;-) If you find any other glitches please report them as well.

Can I check the spell checker in the version of DokuWiki that you have running on your site, or do I need to grab a devel version?

I installed Tiger last Sunday, and have not yet installed DokuWiki, but
I will do soon, and so can test how the spell checker runs on Mac OS
(but as Mac OS is a variant of UNIX and provides Apache and PHP (that
you have to activate) by default, I'm not expecting any problems). BTW
what do you mean by UTF-8 characters? Do I need to test special

BTW. as far as I know the new Tiger version comes with a new
Safari version?

Yes, Safari 2.0. This version is only available on Tiger; the last version available for Panther (10.3) is 1.3.

I would be interested in the differences betwen old an new
version and how
it affects DokuWiki.

I on longer have Panther (and so the 'old' version of Safari), but might
re-install it for tests (if I can easily create a partition).
