How do I add/use/remove the Word Services features in 6.0?

According to Working Software Inc., its developers, the "Word Services Suite is a public, standard protocol, endorsed by Apple Computers. The Word Services Suite defines the standard language that Macintosh applications will use to communicate with one another for functions involving text. This communication ability allows any Macintosh application to use spelling checkers, envelope addressers, grammar checkers, hyphenators, Greek translators, and other utilities that operate on text as if they are built directly into the application itself." <br> Applications that are Word Services compatible include Working Software's own Spellswell, the Nisus grammar tool shipped with Nisus Writer 6.0 (located inside the Tools folder inside the Nisus Writer Tools folder,) and Mikhal (a Hebrew-English spelling checker/translator by <A HREF="http://www.inter.net.il/~panergy/" target="_blank">Panergy</A> soon to become available in an English localized version). <br><B>To add a Word Services application to the menus of Nisus Writer:</B> <OL><LI>Choose Edit Word Services from the Editing Tools submenu of Tools menu.</LI> <LI>In the dialog that appears, click Add and find the application you want to use.
