Normal behaviour due to internal Mac OS X word recognition.
However I just recall that
"Version 1.15 of TeXShop can check spelling as you type. This change was
prompted by the release of a "cocoa spell checker" by Anton Leuski..."
which is obviously uninteresting if there is no difference with the
previous use of any kind of dictionary (which is the case from a TeX
point of view)
On the contrary iTeXMac really checks spelling as you type, such that
previous wrong behaviour never (?) occurs. Moreover it does not rely on
a TeXish dictionary... No more comment.
However, here is the real important question:
For words learned by the dictionary, it is in fact the reponsibility of
the text editor to store and load them. I think we should agree on a
