TIPPINST – One of the down sides of using texmaker is that it does not have integrated spelling. There are a number of latex spell checkers for windows includling aspell etc. Having tried out a few I am sticking with microspell, as well as providing a spelling function it also handles synonyms and definitions. This is a useful feature as the application can check your words against wikipedia etc. The application handles latex,rtf and ascii files as well as various dictionaries. Recommended.
