I tried using Grammatik for awhile because it came with
WordPerfect, but it was too anal, stopping at every
bulleted list and telling me that the "sentence is too long,"
and other observations too useful to mention. Even setting
it to technical or scientific style didn't help much. Maybe
some technical writers need to design one that can grok
conventions we use all the time.
