test case

Input element's value change (from script) does not invoke spell checker (unless user starts typing manually).

document.getElementById("spellTest").value = "TextThatShouldBeMarkedAsMisspelled ";

document.execCommand("InsertText", false, "TextThatShouldBeMarkedAsMisspelled ");

It seems that it worked in the past as EFL used to simulate typing using "inputElement.value = "misspelledString " in API test which started failing (bug 132982). Unfortunately, since limited history of API test failures finding a revision which caused it is unlikely to happen.

FYI, Safari as well as EFL's MiniBrowser do not trigger spellchecking on input.value changes.
