It also substitutes the aspell engine which allows the skipping of  
LaTeX commands (extensible). Open the CocoAspell System Preference  
Pane to enable this behavior. At one time it couldn't work with Check  
as You Type; I believe this now works; but maybe not any better than  
the system spell checker.
