           Summary: Add a way to disable spell checking for specific element
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: sergei.yakovlev at gmail.com

Spell checking is a global setting in Safari. All text fields, text areas and
contenteditable elements are either spell-checked or not. This is great because
it's simple. However, there might be a need to disable spell checking on
specific elements. (For example, a text field where user enters several
space-delimited logins.) Right now, there's no way to do that in Safari.

In Firefox, this is achieved by setting spellcheck="false" on an element. For
Safari implementation, it might be better to add a private CSS property,
something like -khtml-spell-checking: disable.
