Any recommendations for spell checking HTML?

P: n/a

Can anybody recommend something for spell checking HTML files? Something
that's not going to choke on the HTML itself, nor is going to change it (I
don't want to have to go back and correct the HTML). I've tried using
Amaya, but it crashes too much, and stupidly complains about words like
"wouldn't" because they've got an apostrophe in them.

Just got annoucement about the release of Amaya 8.5 where the
release notes <http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/New.html> indicate:

* Fix crashes in the spell checker.

Ok, thanks. I forgot to mention that I run Win98SE and Linux, and I appear
to have aspell installed, so I'll have a play with that. Looks like I'll
be updating Amaya, too (though I think it needs a bit more functionality,
not just fixes).
