Grammar Check


In Windows I always used the Grammar Check built into Microsoft Word. Although its actual grammar checking wasnt always very accurate it had features liek to check how many spaces u want after a period (wheter it be one or 2), the comma properties in a list, and just other things like that along with t he bit of grammar checking I used; I liked it mainly since it made all my papers uniform and corrected some items. However, I havent been able to get Microsoft Word working Under WINE properly with FC3 (I use GNOME) and am not interested in purchasing cross over office. Im wondering iftheres like any grammar check utilities or plugins for Abiword or Open Office that can do Grammar checking and other settings like that for papers. I havent been able to find any yet. Or a way to get mIcrosoft Word working directly with Wine, if possible. Thanks.

which version of Office (Word) are you using? 2000 works fine with WINE, XP takes some tweaking but work great with CrossOver(which you don't want to buy).. I think the new version of CrossOver even works with Office 2003, but again.. you don't want that.
