Excalibur is a Mac spelling checker for plain text documents. It will spell check documents created by any text editor such as BBEdit, Alpha, Emacs or MPW. It will also spell check the clipboard, making it a useful spelling checker for mail programs such as Eudora and news readers such as NewsWatcher. It is also a very good LaTeX spelling checker. LaTeX is a collection of typesetting macros. If you're not a LaTeX user, you should turn off the option that makes Excalibur aware of LaTeX. See LaTeX Options for more information. It is a stand-alone spelling checker that you can use with many other applications. If you want to use it for more...

Excalibur has carried me through e-mails, forums, and virtually everything that requires text that is not in a major page layout program with good built in spell checkers, like InDesign. I simply think Excalibur is indespensible and one of the most valuable software additions to the new Panther Mac OS.

Too bad spelltools does not work with 9.1,

Excalibur is a clunky replacement. Instead of correcting spelling on the fly one must save the file to the hard disc then open it, selelct all to put it in the clipboard, then run excalibur.

Newertech seems o be gone but if someone could make spelltools work wiith 9.1 or 10 I would be so thankful.
