Okay, here's an issue I've been dodging for three years. I work on documents
that have lots of code samples embedded in them. Code uses lots of variable
names and such that do not exist in the FrameMaker dictionary (nor should
they). This means that, if I *was* to spell-check the document, it would take
me hours of either adding weird snippets of text to the dictionary, or telling
FrameMaker to allow it in the document. Does anyone else face this problem? Or,
better yet, does anyone have a solution for it?
