Publishing geekdom, spelling and grammer
- I'm quite suprised that microsoft has a grammer
checker and has had one for sometime, yet major
publishing apps like Quark, Pagemaker and Indesign
don't have this feature integrated. Quark has a
plug-in, Pagemaker and Indesign have story editors,
but no type as you go checkers built in.
Mas OSX is the bomb, hehe, for the moment. I
especially like the sliding and fading dialogs, much
cuter/realistic then zoom rectangles. Wonder what the
G5 will bring.
Peace and Love
