html syntax highlighting disable spell check?

Jiang Qian
Hi All:
I apologize for breaking the thread. I just share dc's problem about
syntax highlighting in html and build-in spellchecker: when I edit a
html file spell checking doesn't work, but as soon as I do
syntax off
the spell check works again! Any idea how to remedy it? I compiled vim 7
from source but did not delete the vim 6 installation from my distro.  
Would that be problem? For some reason for C files and latex files
syntax highlighting doesn't seems to bother spell check.

I don't know if that is (or what is) the cause of the problem, but it
_is_ possible to have several versions of Vim coexist peacefully on a
single computer; see my tip
http://vim.sourceforge.net/tips/tip.php?tip_id=848 for details. That tip
tells how to have each executable use the runtime files from its own
distribution. The user's "homemade" files (~/.vimrc, ~/.vim/*,
$VIM/vimfiles/*, etc.) are common, but it is possible to write them in a
"compatible" way by means of constructs such as

" feature compiled-in, visible in the :version listing
if has("mzscheme")

" functioning option
if exists("+spell")

" test for version
if version >= 700

" test for version and patchlevel
if (version > 604) || ((version == 604) && has("patch008"))

etc.


Best regards,
Tony.
