Description bulbul 2003-08-22 18:03:38 UTC
The spelling of words beginning with the prefix "non-" is inconsistent. They
should either all be hyphenated or all not be hyphenated. In particular, there
is an inconsistency between the hyphenation between "non-printing" in the help
contents list and the corresponding help content, which uses "nonprinting". 

Writer itself uses "nonprinting". I personally prefer the hyphenated version,
but that's someone else's decision. What's important is that we be consistent.

Thanks Leston!

You're right. We want to be consistent. I'll have a look in the
database as soon as I can.

We are so short of time for this release. So I won't be able to correct lesser
important details like this. I want to fix this eventually, but right now there
are unfortunately much more pressing issues.
Please be so kind and retarget to Office Later unless you feel the issue is much
more important.
