Description mdunnerstick 2004-05-23 17:00:10 UTC
Use "seance" and "cliche" as examples, though this applies to all words with
special characters in your dictionary.

When you spell the words "séance" and "cliché," your spell check marks them as
spelled correctly.

When you spell them as "seance" and "cliche," without their accent marks, they
are listed as incorrect during your spell check.

The problem is that your spell check does not suggest the correct spellings of
the words!  You would expect "seance" to be suggested as "séance," especially
since it is a member of your dictionary.

Screen shots included.

Thanks mucho--

MRU->TL: in SO this works perfectly, but in OO these words are not offered as
correction in spellcheck dialog respective spellcheck cotext. Though "cliché"
(with accent) will not be marked as misspelled, it will not be offered as
replacement for "cliche" (without accent).

This can be easily solved by adding the following to all EN affix files:

MAP aÅáâäà
MAP cç
MAP eêéè
MAP oóöô
MAP uüû
MAP nñ
MAP iíï

I included only those accented chars which actually occur in EN (US/GB) myspell
dictionaries as of now.

@nemeth: this is yours, I think. I can include actual patches, but it should be
obvious to you what to do with this.
