I was typing away some text, and one of the words I used was "septic", and noticed Eclipse marked it as a misspelling. I found that to be curious, so I double-checked the spelling, and it seems alright. I went under Preferences > General > Editors > Text Editors > Spelling, and I see that my dictionary is set to the platform dictionary "English (United States)". Since it was using the platform dictionary, I opened up TextEdit (ie. Notepad for the mac) and it didn't mark that word as a misspelling. I am surprised that if the "platform dictionary" was being used, that it wouldn't be the same one as TextEdit uses.

So my questions: when I choose "Platform dictionary: English (United States)" in Eclipse, what dictionary is it using if not the one provided by Mac? And secondly, why is septic not in that dictionary?

Thanks!

It's the Eclipse platform dictionary and not some OS dictionary. I've
added "septic" to the dictionary now.
