As I recall, there was a .pkg which installed an additional dictionary
which facilitated this (or maybe I'm thinking of the ispell integration
as Service .app)---I'll have to check on my Cube at home (been a while
since I set this up)

Integration of Excalibur as a Service should come from Apple---Excalibur
does publish itself as a spelling facility for Carbon/Classic apps which
adhere to that spec. I've said before, and will repeat: Apple should
integrate all Service like things (NeXT-style Services, afore-mentioned
word facility, contextual menu items) and make them coeval.

I'll pass on 2.

I can't believe Apple has taken away NeXT's ability to re-map menu
shortcut keys using the interface in Preference.app so that such things
are moot.

For want of that, I guess every application developer in the world is
going to ``solve'' this problem in their own way using their own
interface and by rolling their own code.
