Description dwb02 2005-06-22 11:49:45 UTC
A new dictionary conforming to the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) style guide
has been created. This style is in use particularly by organisations such as:
     International Red Cross
     -> http://www.ifrc.org/publicat/commsguide/html/Extras/Style%20appendix.pdf
     International Telecommunication Union
     -> http://www.itu.int/sg-conf/general/styleguide.doc
     World Trade Organization
     -> http://members.wto.org/txt/english/bible.htm

A language tag exists for the style:
http://www.iana.org/assignments/lang-tags/en-GB-oed

It is based on British English but using internationally preferred spellings
where alternatives exist.

A dictionary package en_GB-oed.zip comprising:
en_GB-oed.dic
en_GB-oed.aff
README_en_GB-oed.txt
is being submitted for inclusion as an optional English dictionary for OOo.

Thanks
