    Why google is so great..

    Try this:

    Go to google, type (paste preferred) in:
    bawita

    It will return irrelevant results...

    Now search again for:
    kid rock bawita
    Notice the "Did you mean: ..." suggestion

    That's *exactly* what I was looking for! bawita was a typo,and better yet, an incompleted one, but google guessed it out right away. And very fast, too.

    I am officially impressed..

    I made it really messed up.. "wob howstring towllk" and it suggested "web hosting talk". However, I add one letter, to make it "weob howstring towllk" and it suggests "web how string towel".

    That's the simple SOUNDEX function. You can see it every where from MySQL to PHP.
