Should the issue re-arise in the CSS groups: it seems that most of the 
vendors are against exposing system dictionary identified misspelled words.

::spelling would need to have the same level of security as a:visited -- 
only foreground, background color would accept alteration. Anything
else would expose the data being highlighted.
