    Is the data displayed as HTML source or is it formatted as per the markup rules?
    By comparing the original text (without user input) against the new text with the user input, you can see what the user entered.
    Then scan that for spelling.

    You could do worse than check out the Jazzy Spell Checker ( - I've use it for spell-checking in a JTextArea via a hot-key and a context menu.

    Sorry about the raw link - this dumb forum system won't let me use a proper link.
