All the Hoyt You Need
NOTE: You can also use this with ispell, but you'll need to invoke "ispell -c".
NOTE: I found the command line at the bottom of Hunspell to be misleading. For example, it says that pressing "I" is "Insert". It actually means "Accept the word, capitalized as it is in the file, and update private dictionary." As well, "U" is "Uncap". It actually means "Accept the word, and add an uncapitalized (actually, all lower-case) version to the private dictionary." "X" causes you to exit the file with no changes and "Q" causes you to exit, discarding any changes you have already made.
NOTE: Hunspell keeps its dictionaries in /usr/share/hunspell and by default two additional dictionaries are installed. I have found that these other dictionaries, en_CA and en_GB, often confuse Firefox and that is solved easily by deleting all but the en_US files.
