Identifying Words in HTML Documents
By Geertjan-Oracle on Aug 17, 2007
Why might this be useful? Well, it's now a small step to a spell checker. The user would specify a file containing words, the words would be compared to the words in the document, and all the words that are not found in the file would be printed to the navigator. And those words, because they don't match the words in the file, would be the ones that are incorrect in one way or another. And that's all a spell checker should tell you, i.e., which words are incorrect. I've made a spell checker before, using annotations in the editor, but I haven't been able to find the code. Plus, I prefer this navigator approach to adding still more annotations to the editor. So, watch this space for HTML spell checker developments.
