Well given the fact that Eloquence has had this bug for several years,
It's high time that a vendor did something about it.  Hum, hey maybe
that creep did us a favor afterall.  He brought this problem up to such
a high profile that it got formally addressed.  You will notice
something else.  Scansoft hasn't done a thing about it; it took Freedom
Scientific to modify Jaws or one of its dictionaries to "plug up" the
problem.  I think GW Micro got around this one by sticking to an earlier
version of Eloquence and actually stopped using it as their default
synth.  From what I've heard in the past, Scansoft has not been willing
to fix their own bugs and would charge other providers to report them.

Anyway, there is a public fix that all JFW users can apply now.
