or edit the word yourself. Then click Replace. If you want to fix
all occurrences of the misspelled word automatically (even when you use the
spell checker in future AOLpress sessions), check the Always Replace

Guess Again: If one of the suggested corrections is close to the word
you want, select that word and click Guess. You will see a new list
of suggested words. You can pick one of these words and use it to
Replace the word or Guess again.
