Hi Kris,

Thanks for the feedback, I will add an internal issue to consider adding 
more settings for ignoring various constructs when the spell check is 
How about if the end users wrap these particular identifiers in some 
specific DITA inline element like <codeph> and you instruct the spell 
checker to ignore all code phrases when spell checking?
