Spell checking LaTeX documents
I have a LaTeX file which I use to generate a PDF. Is there any tool which I can use to detect spelling mistakes, either directly in the .tex file or in the pdf file ?

Aspell has a special mode to check TeX and so also LaTeX files.
$ aspell -c -t some.tex
Also, your LaTeX editor might already include a special spell checking mode for LaTeX sources, e.g emacs' flyspell comes with options to check LaTeX sources. Emacs is the framework (haha) behind the excellent AucTeX TeX environment.
