Is there a spell checker add-in for source code comments?

Hi.  Is there a good VB 6.0 add-in out there that will seek out comments and perform a spell check on them?  My company has a pet peeve about misspellings in comments and if there was a tool it would save people some angst.

Thanks.

I am not aware of one.  You could obviously open the source files in Word and run that.

It wouldn't be that difficult to build one that uses an existing spell checker

Yes, but word would catch about five billion misspellings, and it would be tedious to sift through them.

Codesmart not only has a spell checker, but it also offers a lot more...  We've used it quite a bit.

Looks great.  Any drawbacks?  Is it robust?  Very $$$?

Very robust, a great time saver when searching for a string, for instance.  It will return all occurrences in a list below code window.  Also, is good for analyzing code, counting number of lines, comments, etc.  I've only used a few of it's features.  As far as price goes, it was already purchased when I started at this job.  I just looked up the pricing:
