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 
general file extension (not .dict) and a file format. Something might 
already exist.

What are your suggestions?
