i have two questions/ suggestions...

  1. can you get "FiOS" added to  spellchecker's dictionary?
  2. why is it intended behavior for "internet" to be treated as a proper noun, needing capitalization? 

thanks!

why is it intended behavior for "internet" to be treated as a proper noun, needing capitalization? 

I found some wiki info about that with the help of Google (or other online search engine)..

I point to third party site URL(s).
