question: does inline spelling error prompting count as a manifestation 
of "auto-complete"?

for example, i would like to take advantage of an add on, such as 
ISpell, or the spellchecker widget included in the google toolbar 
(at least, the last time i had a google toolbar installed), or the 
(internal?) spell check as you type mechanism in FireFox (as well as 
myriad other applications, that are currently inaccessible -- 
especially those that not only mark potentially misspelt words, but 
expose possible alternative onRightMouseClick, such as the 
googlebar's form content spell checker...

these are a type of auto-complete, aren't they?  i certainly hope 
so -- my spelling is getting noticeably worse by the day...

gregory.
