In this lesson, I’m sharing with you two strategies that I use to spellcheck the names of my notes and the values in attributes. Specifically, to accomplish this, I’m using the collect() and values() action code, along with a designator (“descendants”) and dot operators (.format and .replace).

REMEMBER: What you learn in this lesson can be applied to all kinds of situations and to solve all kinds of text transformation operations, In this use case, however, I just happen to be using these functions (collect, values, designators, dot operators) for spellchecking.
