you want to hear our experience on this subject ?
I realized an application that reacts to some hot-key in whatever windows application (word, Iexplorer, excell, any user app) by sending the contents of its clipboard to a particular application (in my case a spell checker); the latter sends back the corrected text to the calling application. Actually the spell checker derives from A-Spell and thus accommodates quite a number of languages.
At many place in my code I use tricks that I found on your site and the present mail is meant to thank you for these numerous snippets I received free thanks to about delphi.
PS The spell chekcker is open source.
