Hello Andrea and L10N,

Andrea, I grabbed the en_GB dictionary from the Mozilla repository, 
since the AOO one is obfuscated. So, my "blueprint" is Mozilla's.

The text I am using in the README is exactly the same, and I just 
replaced the:
*Please let David Bartlett <> know of any *
*errors that you find.*

*The current release is R 1.18, 11/04/05*

With the text you see after the "---" (my own text)

Andrea, while talking to JZA (Alexandro Colorado) last week or so, he 
told me to test the extension myself since only a few files were 
replaced. I tested it in my AOO 4.0.1 and all worked okay. All words I 
added were no longer recognized as typos.

Andrea, I created an account but I am having passwords issues:
first I set the username to *marcoagpinto*, then, in the e-mail I 
received it said: "*Marco A.G.Pinto*" and when I clicked in the link I 
received it doesn't allow me to change the password, even if I did try 
to reset it. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards,
