Question Using Two Dictionaries Simultaniously

I am currently using gnome on Fedora 11 and English is the default language on the system. I was able to figure out how to make it possible to add Spanish characters when I type (like ñ, ó, é, etcetera). I also figured out how to install Spanish dictionaries for the software I use that commonly does spell checking. What I would like some help with is figuring out how to have two default dictionaries in use at the same time. For example if I am using OpenOffice to write something, I would like to be able to write in either Spanish or English and not have worry about changing the dictionary in use. Is it possible to have two dictionaries set up at the same time?

Thanks in advance.

In OpenOffice, it is possible to choose:
Tools > Language > For Selection / For Paragraph / For all Text

In Evolution, when creating a new message, it is possible to select more than one language at the same time:
Edit > Current Languages (you should be able to select more than one)

These are just two examples. I'm not able to do it in Firefox or Pidgin, so I think it depends on the application that you use.
