5 It happens now and then, mails from this list get lost on their way
6 to the subscribers: some receive them, some don't.

12 They must. When things are done right, there will already be a
13 standard for what the File and Edit and other menus look like in
14 Spanish, which hotkeys are normally used for which function.
15 OpenOffice in Spanish, and any other program localised to that
16 language, should follow that standard. What if you've never used
17 the English version of a program and you find that all the hot keys
18 are different from the corresponding ones used in other Spanish
19 programs? Then you'll be really annoyed. And in the long run,
20 there'll be many more people who've always used just the Spanish
21 version than people who switch from one to the other.
