Hi ppl,
I'm a biology student and therefore I use any word not in the preset
This resulted me making user dictionaries for e.g physics, chemistry, zoology
and so on... I was quiet surprised about the "avoid" dictionary, a great idea
to avoid multiple types of one word, but the thought behind it was incomplete.
Let me show one example.

You have the aminoacid L-Alanine the L- is usually written in small capitals,
so why shouldn't you be able to add the L as a small capital?.
Or lets have a look at the ion Fe²⁺  the 2+ have to be superscript, otherwise
it could be misinterpreted as 2 Fe ions.

What I would like to say is, why not using formatting in the dictionaries?

And beside that, is it possible to save the dictionaries as xml files? it would
be more easier to add multiple words, as e.g all aminoacids in a row, or all
acids listed on wikipedia ;)

This would solve both problems at once.
You could store the informations about the formatting in the xml files. And you
could easily make xml files, if you don't need special formatting. Also the
avoid dictionary could make a Fe2+ to a correct formatted Fe²⁺.

What do you think about it?
My programming skills are subterrestrial... would it be big work?
