So far, I have had a really good experience getting this site up on TypePad. The one problem I have had with an otherwise very well thought out tool is the lack of spell check. I am a completely dysfunctional speller, and HAVE to have spell check.
Another blogger recommended ieSpell, which can add a button to your IE tool bar, or, as I use it, add an option to the right click menu. So far, this tool has been a lifesaver. Highly recommended.
