Spell Check in VS2008

Visual Studio 2008 provides spell check facility out of box. It can check spelling of of identifiers like class.

This is implemented as a Code Analysis Naming Rule (CA1704). If this is turned on, Code Analysis will check whether all the identifiers are spelled correctly. This gives us a chance to make sure that the entity classes / DOM are named properly. Note that the identifier/class has to be public or exposed.

If the spelling is wrong it displays a warning/error –
