what do you think this should show? a bunch of possible words that match (ordered according to popularity)?

i'm guessing that after selecting a list of possible candidates, you have something in your databases that indicates popularity/frequency. How can that be accessed?

I'm asking because I'm interested in taking it up.

to be honest, his plugin looks more useful... i'm not sure if this one is of any use, other than maybe when you are playing a "guess the word game".

Since this was originally posted, crazedpsyc developed a similar plugin: Spell [word] helps you spell and gives suggestions: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=spell+superflu...

The s_____g example doesn't apply to this, though.
