Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any style checker tools, preferably ones
that plug-in to FrameMaker, that are available?

Specifically I am looking for the tool to do the following:

- Program module which can be used with a glossary and the user inputs
their terms. When the person is writing the tool will flag the user if
they use the wrong term. In this way it creates consistency of

- Program module in which user inputs their terms and synonyms are used.
This way the tool could flag the person and suggest a different way of
stating something.

I work on a Mac operating system and use FrameMaker. As a beginning writer
I would find this type of tool extremely useful.

Does anyone know about something off-hand?

Thank you,
