No need to install any frameworks; TeXworks has them built-in. I just
got the dictionaries I wanted (aff and dic files) and installed them
I do wish I could use CocoAspell though. I had a hard time getting it
to work when I switched over to Intel from PPC and eventually had to
remove every file that was installed and then install the Intel
version. Works great under 10.6 once I read what was said about the
additional step of setting System Preferences->Language & Text->Text-
