    Contractions like "doesn't" are assumed to be mispelled by the editor's spell check.  Is there anyway to fix this?

    Hello Travis,

    I was unable to reproduce the problem in the RadEditor's live demos, because the string doesn't is available in the en-US.tdf dictionary available in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX installations.

    For your convenience I have attached the latest version of the dictionary.

    All the best,

    I think the difference is the single quote character vs the apostrophe.  It mainly happens with when pasting from MS Word which I believe uses the single quote character.  The resulting html looks (even after being "cleaned") like this:

    doesn’t

    Hi Travis,

    This scenario is not supported by RadSpell but you can handle the paste event and replace the ’ character and ’ entity with the standard ' single quote symbol.

    You can use the OnClientPasteHtml event to obtain the clipboard content when the Paste command is executed.

    Another option is to update the dictionary file with the desired words using the Dictionary Configurator.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks.  I went with the on paste option since I already had that event set up.
