Ignored Words (Elements)

The content of some XML elements such as programlisting, codeblock, or screen should always be skipped by the spell checking process. The skipping can be done manually, word by word by the user using the Ignore button of the Spelling dialog box, or automatically by maintaining a set of known element names that should never be checked. You maintain this set of element names in the user preferences as a list of XPath expressions that match the elements.

Only a small subset of XPath expressions is supported, that is only the '/' and '//' separators and the '*' wildcard. Two examples of supported expressions are /a/*/b and //c/d/*.
