Problems with SpellChecker plugin 1.7 Can't Post

I am trying to get the spell-checker plugin for 3.0 to work and am running into some problems. I have Perl (with extensions) and Aspell loaded and they appear to be working fine. My problem is, when I click on the spell-check icon in the spell-checker.html example file, the displayed spell-check window contains ALL of the source page, not just the text in the textarea tag. Anyone else seen this before? Any ideas? Fixes? Thanks much!

I finally managed to get this resolved and this may help others...

First, install Aspell after installing Perl and Text-Aspell. I had installed the Aspell program prior to installing Text-Aspell and once I uninstalled Aspell and re-installed it, I got much farther.

Second, ensure that the path to Aspell is in your path variable. It was not being included as part of the install and once I added it and rebooted, it started working.
