    If not specified, this defaults to false

    The HTML

    The spellcheck attribute uses values of true or false (you cannot simply add the spellcheck attribute to a given element):

    <!-- spellcheck everything! -->
    <input type="text" spellcheck="true" /><br />
    <textarea spellcheck="true"></textarea>
    <div contenteditable="true" spellcheck="true">I am some content</div>
    <!-- spellcheck nothing! -->
    <input type="text" spellcheck="false" /><br />
    <textarea spellcheck="false"></textarea>
    <div contenteditable="true" spellcheck="false">I am some content</div>

    You can use spellcheck on INPUTTEXTAREA, and contenteditable elements.  Thespellcheck attribute works well paired with the autocomplete, autocapitalize, and autocorrect attributes too!
