accessing firefox's spellcheck
I'm trying to make a spellchecker that will let users step through misspelled words in content editable divs, like the way you can when you spellcheck a word document. It only needs to work in firefox, so I figure using firefox's built-in spellchecker would be the easiest way.
I see here:
that you can access FF's spellchecker when writing extensions for firefox, but I'm kind of hoping a) not to have to make it an extension that you have to install to use and b) not to have to learn how to write an add-on.
thanks in advance for any suggestions...

you can't call the firefox code or interface form JS. at all.

Thanks for confirming what I feared, rnd me.
I decided not to be so lazy and to build an extension, so now I am trying to get my head around XUL, which I only vaguely knew existed until yesterday. But thankfully Mozilla's documentation is very good, so I am plodding along.
I'll keep the source code option in mind, though, in case i get really stuck
