correctly spelled words vs everything else. I can think of one
possible scenario that would involve creating a duplicate document,
then using the built in spell checker to find misspelled words
without correcting them in that duplicate document. And each time it
came to a misspelled word it would record the word in an array..
Then after the spell check is complete, to use the array to go back
and delete, or capitalize, or mark with special tags of some kind,
the words that were misspelled.. Which would only leave correctly
spelled words left untouched in the duplicated document.
But lordy that sounds like a lot of work, something probably not best
suited for NoteTab. Later versions of Microsoft Word will indicate
all misspelled words in a document, I know it's the opposite of what
you are looking for, but it's the closest thing I can think of to do
what you want.
