DreamCatcher ... A nightmare of both novice and advanced Web developers is finding a misspelling in their work. What is worse is a client or an end user finding a misspelled word. You lose credibility and just generally look bad. The problem is that it is difficult to spell check a Web site -- that is where DreamCatcher comes in.

DreamCatcher is a nifty utility to check for spelling errors on a Web site. DreamCatcher moves through the pages of a given site checking both the text on the site as well as the text of linked Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF documents. DreamCatcher makes it
What's New
Version 1.2.1:
  • Two html parsers are now available: the classic regex based DreamCatcher parser and now the new XML Tidy based parser. The default remains the DreamCatcher parser, but you can switch over to Tidy via the preferences.
    Tidy is stricter and probably more "correct" than the old DreamCatcher parser but as a consequence of that it does not handle malformed pages as well. Both parsers seem to be about the same speed, but Tidy seems to use less memory so Tidy might be the better choice if you need to scan huge pages.

I download the program and ran it through about a half a dozen large sites I built and it worked very well. It didn't stall or slow down and caught quite a few spelling errors that GoLive did not catch.
No problems here.. works well. I will use it in the future on my web sites.

It seems that it supports not only English, what's very good, but it does not recognizes certain foreign characters. Moreover it really needs improvements concerning the speed/performance. Thank you for the nice (free) utility. ;)

Did a good job with a website that had about 20 pages but can't handle much beyond that.

From the DreamCatcher help:

"Important: The amount of memory used by DreamCatcher is proportionate to the amount of text on the Web site you are checking. You may need a lot of RAM to spell check large Web sites and it is possible to run out of memory on really huge sites."

I may look into using CoreData or something similar to allow larger websites to be spellchecked in a future revision.
