Description pplwong 2006-10-03 04:51:27 UTC
For example, for English language, since my Windows has a default in "Canada"
and language in Canadian, it looks like pick that up and set my
language to "Canadian English".

Now, when I perform spell check, since the Canadian English dictionary is not
available, it just says "spell check finished", without correcting any errors
nor indicating there is no dictionary for the language.

Is it possible to add a feature so that, when the language is set to a language
variance without dictionary (e.g. en-CA), it'll fall back to dictionary of
another variance in the same language that has a dictionary (e.g. en-US/en-GB)?
