Given a URL that looks like this:
the spell service will return an XML stream looking like this:
<spell> <version>0.1</version> <word>origami</word> <dictionary>master</dictionary> <spellings> <spelling>origami</spelling> <spelling>origem</spelling> <spelling>irrigam</spelling> <spelling>obrigam</spelling> </spellings> </spell>
Clients are then expected to read the XML and provide enhanced services to users. A primary example is to suggest alternative queries to searches that return few or no hits.
This service was implemented as a part of National Science Foundation grant (DUE-0333601) called OCKHAM Library Network, Integrating the NSDL into Traditional Library Services.
