am trying to install this cookbook http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SpellChecker
unfortunately the GB dictionary is not being picked up. when i run spell checker on the browser i get a javascript errors. 
this is caused by invalid html being picked up when it tries to retrieve the temporary file needed to run the spell checker
<br /><b>Warning</b>:  shell_exec(): Unable to execute '&quot;C:\Program Files\Aspell\bin\aspell.exe&quot; -a --encoding=utf-8 &lt; C:\Temp\aspAEB.tmp 2&gt;&amp;1' in <b>C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\pub\speller\spellchecker.php</b> on line <b>93</b><br />error = 'System error: Aspell program execution failed (`"C:\Program Files\Aspell\bin\aspell.exe" -a --encoding=utf-8 < C:\Temp\aspAEB.tmp 2>&1`)';
(the javascript errors seem erroneous but stem from the spellchecker.php - i think the html that is pulled in when the spell checker runs is causing the javascript errors - syntax error/wordWindowObj is undefined/object required)
i hardcoded the path to the aspell.exe and used quotes as suggested in the cookbook. the webserver is running xp and as its at work i am unable to install any other operating system or use any other browser than ie v6.0.2900.
i did investigate the 2>&1 in case this was a unix script but google suggests this can be used on a windows o/s. i have also hardcoded the temporary file to point to c:temp
any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated. the spell checker would be of great benefit to the users!
