[QUOTE]\nWe're all quite lucky, that English has become the world language, and\nwe're native speakers of English when most of the rest of the world have\nto learn it in addition to their own language, and in most cases English\nis more difficult to learn that their own language. Why go and make it\nmore difficult for non-native English speakers by maintaining so many\ndifferent versions of English?[/QUOTE]\n\nAs an Englishman in exile (still after 25 years - might go for the op\nthis year <g>) I have to take exception to the idea of English being the\nnative language of most Australians. You seem to forget; we still own\nthe source code. Australia, at best, has a limited EULA to use (or\nshould that be abuse?).\n\nRunning, Ducking\n\nNigel.
