arashi has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks,

The problem: We need to have a web form for content management have access to a spell checker.

What we can currently do: We have a word list of about 175,000 words that we can compare to, however we lack the ability to offer suggestions for misspelled words.

What we can not do: Unfortunately we can't get ISpell working on our server (see Ispell path for W2K) otherwise we would be using that.

What we're looking for: Any good resources/help on the logic behind spell checking with the ability to suggest words. If you have any ideas we would appreciate it.

Thank you in advance for your help.
