spell checker

Hello everyone,

Guys i need to know what are the constraints in designing a spell-checker program? for example Word processor ignores acronyms and does not check them. Could anyone think of more contraints that should be considered when designing a spell-checker?

Regards

Not being that kind of wizard, I prefer *spelling* checkers.

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
It's rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
It's letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
