Thanks so much. I'm no longer getting the error i note below.
however, the american.hash you link to below detects every
word in every one of my docs as misspelled (even if they're spelled
correctly) and offers "no suggestion" ;-)
i have a feeling it should be a binary file and not text. but that's just
a guess. maybe you could tar it up for me. as it stands now if i do a wget
or a lynx -source it grabs the file as a text file. unless of course it
should be a plain text file and it's just the wrong language.
thanks so much for your help.
