absolute beginner (nevertheless important) question

Post by adi » Mon, 16 Aug 2004 05:17:20


I started to learn about *** and MikTex only a few hours ago, and I
believe it is imperative for me to switch from Word to Latex.
I know there are answers to any formatting questions and I'll read and
dig more. What I wasn't able to find is related to something very
useful in Word: spelling.
Error is human, everybody does mistakes, especially because I'm using
special characters (Romanian language).
Is there a solution to this problem in Latex?
Any hint will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Most free editing environments for *** can talk with aspell, a spell

11.50 release), a pretty nice TeX shell running in the Emacs editor.

Within Emacs, you can also use flyspell-mode which will underline all
words in a document that are not considered correct by aspell.

It will benefit your productivity if your editor supports TeX editing
specifically. If you don't want to try Emacs, there are also more
typical Windows applications like TeXniccenter or WinEdt available for
editing and running TeX.
