When I bought my first copy of FrameMaker four years ago, I was advised to
make this change to the NORMAL style definition on all of my template
files. Any new styles I define are built from this NORMAL style, so they
inherit this characteristic. Perhaps that's why I've never seen the sort
of spell-check error that was described here.
PS: I'm obsessive about checking the results of the spell-checker on any
tool I use. I just don't trust 'em. Nope. None of 'em. <grin>
