A class of finite differencing high-resolution shock-capturing methods for special relativistic magnetohydrodynamics is presented. The divergence condition is controlled by the divergence cleaning approach of Dedner (2002). By performing a series of standard tests the schemes are proven to be high-order accurate for smooth solution and stable in the case of strong shocks.
