Glossary Item Box

 

Liquid XML Studio can perform spell checking within your XML documents using standard Open Office dictionary files.

See details below for installing additional dictionaries. 

Enable Spell Checking

If this is checked then spell checking occurs in real time as the document is changed.

For large documents it can take a little while for the checking to complete.

Xml Entities to Check

Element Name

If this option is checked then the element tag names are checked

i.e. <BaddlySpeltTag> would flag up 'Baddly' as misspelled

Attribute Name

If this option is checked then the attribute names are checked
i.e. <element BaddlySpeltAttribute=""> would flag up 'Baddly' as misspelled

CDATA

If this option is checked then the content of CDATA blocks are checked

Element Text

If this option is checked then the text within a elements is checked

i.e. <element>Baddly Spelt Text</element> would flag up 'Baddly' as misspelled

Attribute Text

If this option is checked then the element tag names are checked

i.e. <element attribute="Baddly Spelt Text"> would flag up 'Baddly' as misspelled

Comments

If this option is checked then text within comment blocks is checked

Word Splitting Rules

As many XML identifies are composed from several words the spell checker attempts to split them into individual words for checking.

Words are automatically split by case, so "complexType" is seen as "complex" & "type", but other rules can be applied for more complex cases.

Check UPPER case words

If this option is checked then words that contain only upper case characters are still checked

i.e. In <ADDRESS/> the word "address" would be checked.

Check words with numbers

If this option is checked then words that contain numbers are still checked (with the numbers removed).

i.e. If the option is checked then in <Address3/> the word "address" would be checked, if it was unchecked no checking would be performed

word splitting chars

Determines the characters used to split words. This is particularly meaningful for attribute and element names.

i.e. if the split chars contained '-' and '_' then <MY-Element_Name> would be seen as 3 words (my, element & name).

Min Word Length

Any words shorter than this are ignored

Max Word Length

Any words longer than this are ignored.
