Is it the keyword meta tag you are talking about? If so, don't sweat it because Google doesn't use that tag to score your page.
What is more important is to build pages around the different variations of the KW'S you are trying to target. I would suggest a tool like wordtracker or the Overture search suggestion tool to get an idea of the words that are most likely to be searched and build pages around those terms accordingly.
I don't want to repeat past discussions, so here are some threads worth to read:

Have a nice read. ;)
At one of my sites i established a section called widgetbreeders some years ago - due to my lack of english language skills i used the one-word-version for the url as well as for all link anchor texts. Two months later i noticed the misspelling. Too late - the page allready received that much referers from google that i would be a idiot to correct the misspelling. Still one of my best pages. :D
Thanks for this brillant idea, MHes! I allready started to build a funny misspelling glossary (food for the users and food for the spiders) based on user input (queries) but it's not yet finished. Allthough i also sell books i never thought about selling a spell-checker at the glossary pages.
I'll gonna try this! Great idea, really! ;)
