Technical Writers and Stylists,
I'm looking for a package that will enable me to "spell check" a
FrameMaker 5.1 document for corporate terms and technical phrases.
(I use FrameMaker in a Unix environment.) These terms and phrases
need to be consistent for punctuation and capitalization, and are often
more than one word (e.g., Flash Serial as a company standard and not
FLASH, or flash serial, or flash-serial, etc.). It would be ideal if
this tool could react in real-time, automatically alerting me when
I misspell a phrase, but I would also be happy to find something that
I could run as a spell checker. Does anyone know of such a package?
