This has drawbacks too
Authored by: Hiram on Oct 25, '02 04:49:54AM
I use multilingual spell checking all the time, because it saves me the trouble of switching languages (Dutch, English, Italian, French) all the time.
However, the best way of doing this would be to have the spell checker detect which language is used (by context), instead of simply checking all words against all dictionaries it has at its disposal. Misspellings in one language may be valid words in another, in which case they won't get flagged, as if they were lone Dutch words in an all-English phrase.
