Many times now I have been wanting to have a background image of the input-window where the name of the currect played character is or there is an icon of the current character or something alike. This is very good as I often use a lot of MUSHes at the same time and colourcoding the input boxes is sometimes not enough to keep them separated.

Also, the spellchecking would be neat if it could be with the same kind of underlining as in for example Microsoft Word, MacOS X or Trillian, a red and jagged line underneath words that are spelled incorrectly. This makes it much easier to spellcheck on-the-fly so to speak.

With a small script in "world get focus" you could put the current character name in the status bar, which is right next to the input box.

As for more sophisticated spell checking, again that sort of stuff costs money, and adds to software bloat. I'm not sure I like the way that Windows programs get slower each "improvement" that they release.
