Check Your Spell Check!

Are you sure you have the mean, RIGHT word?

Common spell check mistakes:

then instead of than
here instead of hear
its instead of it's
your instead of you're
wonder instead of wander
their instead of they're
farther instead of further
sight instead of site

What errors did spell check "fix" for you?
