    Why? A good friend of mine from Wales is named Telsa. If she comes to visit and I'll talk about her reaction to my cars, that post will be auto corrected to be nonsensical or blocked?
    I sure hope not.

    It seems that Google does exactly as you wish

    I was curious to learn why is telsa offensive as I am not familiar with the term, I thought it could be some American term. Google search will not accept such spelling nor would it give any result for telsa.

    It must be a typo. If anyone cares about their typing and grammar, I recommend Grammarly, it does wonders for me.

    I identify with Bearxxx since I've got a touch of dyslexia myself and transpose letters all the time, particularly when I'm "typing" on my iPad. What we need is a good spell checker embedded within the forum software.

    While we are at it, the factory is located in Fremont, California. I do not know where "Freemont." is.

    The city was named after the famous explorer, Capt. John C. Fremont. (There is an accent over the "e", but I do not know how to include that on my keyboard.)

    The official technical method is to Google it and then copy and paste it, probably from Wikipedia.

    In iOS at least you simply hold down on the letter and it pulls up choices like é and ë

    I used to constantly mis-type conslutant, embarassing since I was in the biz.

    I did that once, when in the same biz. All you need is one coworker to correct you on the grounds that, as a professional, you charge by the hour...

    That is SO true! I didn't realize it was official however. I'm constantly using the cut and paste method as I can never remember the correct alt-meta-ctrl-shift-option-⌘ combination. (I just did it again for the ⌘ symbol!)
