The following sentences are *commands* that refer to browser actions:
Let automatic completion be turned _on_. (command)
Let spell checking be turned _on_. (command)
The following sentences are *descriptions* that refer to user actions:
Let this content _be_ editable.
(description what happens if the user wishes to edit this content)
Let this element _be_ draggable.
(description what happens when the user attempts to drag)
Therefore I insist on having spellcheck="on". Spellcheck="true" is
misleading because spellcheck is a command for the browser.
P.S.: While I am immensely grateful to you for rescuing "referrer", I shall
nevertheless criticize you mercilessly for prescribing spellcheck="true".
So be warned ;-)
