Contextual spell check with google documents

Google documents are a much more powerful tool than the simple cloud based word processing software I first discovered about 6 years ago. Now it is full of excellent and often Microsoft Word-beating features.
Contextual spell check is an example of one of these powerful features. I learned about this at this year's Bett conference in London from Mark Allen at his Google Apps presentation.

If you type into a Google Doc "Icland is an Icland".

If right-click on the first icland I get

If I right click on the second I get

The spell checker understands the context and that the same mis-spelt word is likely to mean Iceland in the first instance and island in the second instance. Very clever indeed!
