Which grammar checker? I only see references to "document filters (e.g
WordPerfect)" and "Licensed commercial quality spell checker and thesaurus"
are they licensing it from WordPerfect?
Sorry, have not used StarOffice in several years, (Whatever version came
with Mandrake Power Pack 8.0) and had no need of one back then.
BTW, OpenOffice may soon have a rudimentary grammar checker. Nothing to get
excited about yet, unless English is not your native language. The one I
tested was pretty much useless for a native. Even one who butchers English
as badly as I:)
