Reply to: Using xml:lang Values to Control Spell CheckingFebruary 4, 2014 at 10:58 pm
For anyone that wants to use proper xml:lang values with XMAX today (in the case where the current value for a particular language is non-standard) you can launch the spell checker then add a language that uses the xml:lang value you want via the Options > Language. Clicking the Add button lets you add a new language code, which you can then choose and select a language file to use with.
These codes are limited to two letter codes only.
Pretty sure this won't help mrpaul as the additional requirement there is that you don't want to modify the DTD, and the current DTD doesn't have xml:lang, so the scripting solution is probably easiest in that case.
