Thanks for the info. But, when I launch the cocoAspell service from 
the Finder (well, actually it is launched at startup), nothing 
happens in the Finder (the application is running though, as can be 
checked with Process Viewer).
In my understanding, this suggests that the cocoAspell service 
interacts only with the applications designed to interact with it, 
with no standalone user interface.
Do I understand correctly from you message that this is not 
necessarily the case for all services?
