    Hey Techies,

    We are using RadEditor control in MOSS. After entering text, as soon as we apply, SPELL CHECK, following error occurred. We are not getting root cause for same.

    Spell Check Handler Server Error:500

    [DictionaryFormatException: Invalid dictionary format.  Please import the word list with the Dictionary tool or download a newer dictionary.]

    Hello Tarun,

    This error usually indicates a corrupt dictionary file. Please check your spell dictionaries (*.tdf files) and make sure that they are the same as the originals from the RadEditor installation. If you have tried to make modifications to the en-US.tdf dictionary file, you can tell us what you wanted to change and we will tell you how to do it.
