Description maxhyre 2009-03-09 23:12:27 UTC
`Bandolier' and `bandoleer' are both acceptable spellings for the same
definition (_The Random House Dictionary of the English Language:  The
Unabridged Edition_)  OOo Writer claims the former is wrong.

Note 1:  I presume priority 4 is lower than priority 3, but it could be the
higher the number the higher the priority.  If so, my apologies for escalating a
report I intended to downgrade.

Note 2:  I was going to attach an example (a document containing the single word
`bandolier' :-) but couldn't figure how to so with this form.  What am I missing?

        Thanks and best wishes,

                Max Hyre

@SBA: Please take over...

Reproduced in 3.0.1 with English US and UK.
Reproduced in 3.1 developer build ONLY for English UK! English US accepts and
proposes both "bandolier" and "bandoleer". Thus changing summary.

@maxhyre: now I have opened your document and see that you formatted English
USA, so this is fixed in 3.1.
Maybe "bandolier" simply does not exist in British English (!!!???)...

Hm, Mcmillan lists this as valid British word so I reassign this issue to
