Hi George:

Congrats on the Word Translation tables.  What feed-back are you looking for. 
An exemplarary First draught. I simply must have these tables in a left-hand 
giggle sprocket, so please don't procrastinate any further.

Smiling appreciatively

  Subject: [duxhelp] Help: Language Translation Tables

  I've completed a first draft of the Language Translation Tables section of 
the Help files, which should be in tomorrow's autobuild (3rd June) - and 
eventually in the next Beta.

  I have also generated a Word 2003 file, compiled directly from the Help 
files, which you can download from the Duxbury Systems Partners Pages, Beta 
Section.  It's around 500k, and is not zipped.

  I have not at this point attempted to generate any braille from the Word 
file, for the sole reason that it's late, and I do occasionally have to sleep.

  The file is in American Letter size format (11 inches by 8.5 inches), and 
contains a basic Table of Contents and an Index.  I'm hoping it will transport 
to other system word-wide.

  Sighted readers will note that I have included what I hope are relevant 
national flags with each of the topics, as much to enhance to visual 
appearance, as anything else.  Screen readers users will note that I've also 
been stupid enough to forget to Alt Tag the flags in the Help files, but I will 
rectify this serious omission when my batteries are recharged.

  I'd very much appreciate some feedback, especially on the Word document.  
Duxbury has been severely chastised on the Duxuser list over the lack of 
accessible documentation, and I am attempting to rectify this with 10.5.  Hence 
I'm hoping your input will help mould how the rest of the documentation is 
produced and presented.

  At this stage, please don't ask for files in plain text, XML, HTML, 
DAISY/NISO, or a left handed giggle-sprocket.  Miracles may take just a shade 

  If you feel your comments won't pass the list censors, please feel free to 
write privately to be at george@xxxxxxxxxx

  All the best,

  George Bell.
