Surely. I used RightWriter, originally from Sarasota FL. Easily
configured. UNLIKE the Grammatik (sorry for the spelling) grammar
check utility, RightWriter proofed the document, THEN presented a
list of suggestions. I loathe the -interactive- Grammatik; it halts
when it finds something it suspects is incorrect, so I must babysit
the [expletive deleted] thing. Naturally, MS in its wisdom, included
either Grammatik or a look-alike into Word V6 and V7. If anyone
has information about RightWriter for Windows (preferably 95), please
let me know. I'll wager RightWriter knows the difference between
*its* and *it's* and between *in* and *into.* (And where to put the
peiod -- inside or qutside the quote.)
