7.6 Spelling and grammar checking

See bugzilla: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13397

The spellcheck attribute currently is limited to user-edited text.

It would be useful to have some way of identifying content that should not be spellchecked in an editor or by an automated spellchecking service.

It would seem most intuitive to use the same attribute for this, but more carefully distinguish between the case where the user agent is dealing with user editable text and non-user-editable text, if necessary. On the other hand, perhaps a different attribute would keep the two different usages clearer.

(Browsers should also consider the language set by the lang (or xml:lang) attribute when choosing which content to check. It is very useful if the editor or service ignores content that is not in the language of the currently set spellchecker dictionary (oXygen and XMeTaL both do this, for example). Particularly useful for handling text containing fragments in more than one language.)

(This is a similar idea to having a translate attribute which offers a standard way to tell machine translation systems and other translation processes what to translate and what not.)
