The word "timeline" is not in standard.dic in OpenOffice v2.3.1. The real word
is not "time line". 


Hope it gets added. Thank you.

Then just add it to your standard dic.

Background: The standard dictinary comes empty. Its purpose is to collect
"special words" like names or whatever crosses your work repeatedly but does NOT
affect the rest of the world. Therefore its default language is "All".

An English word that is not (or wrong) in the spellchecker must be adressed in
the spellchecker dictionaries.

So the maintainers of the dictionaries must add this word. Note: There always
was, is and will be missing words in every dictionary. Thus a collection in the
standard dict is not a feasible solution.

This issue must be fixed for all English dictionary extensions individually by
the respective owners. Anyone willing to make a collection of all issues of all
words that are still missing. I bet "timeline is about one out of thousand :-)

Adjusted summary, reassigned to issues@lingucomponent.
