I'm with Lisi here.  We need a way to disable html unless we enable it on 
purpose with the composer->options->html checkbox. Nothing else 
including a nearby tactical nuke should be capable of enabling it.

However I can't say that clicking on the abc icon  ever refused to spell 
check.  But full time active as I type, I think I've only seen once in 
the last few months I have been running tde, now r14.0.4.  And amazingly 
the KMail  handbook pointed me at the composer->options-> spellchecker, 
which has NO on-off tally, or recognition that you have clicked on the 
phrase, but its alternate action, so now its showing me Lisi and abc in 
red.  Someplace else I've already forgotten said if too many errors it 
will shut itself off.  With all my fat fingered typing on a too crowded 
keyboard, that is not surprising.

So here are at least 2 who are digging ditches in the sand of the beach 
in the shape of HELP please.

Thanks, a lot, for where that hotkey is so we can nuke it forever, plus a 
couple weeks.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
