need to get htmlarea to show up with spellerpages script

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

<head><title>The Techunit word processor</title>
<script src="/speller/spellChecker.js" language="javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript">
function openSpellChecker( txt ) {
var txt1 = document.formword.documentsave;
//var txt2 = document.testform.words2test2;
var speller = new spellChecker(txt1);
<script language="Javascript1.2"><!-- // load htmlarea
_editor_url =""; //url to htmlarea files
var win_ie_ver = parseFloat(navigator.appVersion.split("MSIE") [1]);
if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Mac') >=0){
win_ie_ver =0;}
if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Windows CE') >= 0){
win_ie_ver =0;}
if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Opera') >= 0){
win_ie_ver =0;}
if(win_ie_ver >= 5.5){
document.write('<scr' + 'ipt src="' + _editor_url+ 'editor.js"');
document.write('language="Javascript1.2"></scr' + 'ipt>');

Bill, you were able to get the spellerpages script to communicate back to the htmlarea text area? I've been working on that for days and have not been successful. I can get spellerpages to spellcheck the htmlarea text area, but I can't get it to put the corrected results BACK INTO the htmlarea text area once it is completed with the corrections.

If you were able to get it to do this... I would LOVE to know how you did it if you wouldn't mind helping a fella out?

Or if anybody else out there has done the same thing... any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
