>From some discussion on the BBEdit list I found out that It works, sort-a,in
BBEdit 8 by simply picking the Aspell dictionary. However, BBEdit feeds it
words with \'s, etc., stripped so it can't pick out commands. That is also
what happens with check-as-I-type mode in Cocoa applications. That,
supposedly, is why it can't do the LaTeX checking.

Good Luck,
