Michael, you should get DictMgr and switch off
"commons(attributed)(forward)" I saw an immense improvement when writing
languages other than English (French, German and Dutch, so also quite a few
accents involved)
There is also a user on this list (Jeroen Goulooze) that developed a Dutch
Dictionary together with Paul Guyot, maybe you should get together with Paul
and develop a German dictionary (however, isn't there a German 2000 already,
maybe you can port the dictionary ?)

Which greatly surprises me, I'm in a wet climate as well, so are New England
users like Rich, never heard this one before, seems there's something wrong
with your Newton.
