How come I always do things the hard way?

Word Guesser works on automatic. Just compile this with FBtoC's  
Objective-C compiler preference.

Enter a word or partial word, hit and hit the "Guess" button.

Next step is to implement full automatic spelling from within FB.  
Then we will have a full-fledged spell checker for our apps.

I need to try to figure out how to send the spell checking panel a  
range of words to check. Ideas welcome.
