IE10 for Windows 7 introduced spell checking of text entered in web forms.

It seems that's not the case with IE11 Preview.

Has the feature just been removed?

Great! I'm inferring from this that IE11 for Windows 7 is close to being ready for RTW!

We've received a couple more reports of this and have been able to reproduce this bug on Windows 7. We believe that we've fixed all known issues on our internal builds, and you should see this work as expected in the final release of IE11 and Windows 8.1.
