    HTML Aware Spell Checker

    I have been writing documentation lately as HTML pages for some projects. So I was wondering if anything exists out there which I can essentially copy and paste a HTML page and go through a spell checker that is HTML aware/smart. Meaning the checker will prompt for content rather tags and leave the tags alone. Any ideas?
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.

    Couldn't you just use any spellchecker and choose to skip over the HTML tags?

    What program provides a spell checker with an option to skip over HTML tags?

    Browsers with spell-checking addons installed (though I believe you mean the naked source code rather than output). Dreamweaver and I think HTML-Kit with plugins is able to do that and probably dozens of other web editors.

    I think he meant, just hit the "ignore" button.

    Yes - I use Bluefish and it has a spellcheck.
