Best Answer

New questions are run through a spellchecker when they are submitted. The questioner is given suggested changes. Of course, that doesn't prevent people from submitting questions with lots of horribly misspelled words. WikiAnswers now houses a spellchecker for answers. After typing your answer, look to the far right of the formatting options bar in the WYSIWYG editor. The ABC and check mark button is the spellchecker. Just click on it, and it will show you every instance of misspellings in your answer and give you an opportunity to fix them before saving the answer.
