It appears the consistency of the dictionary collection at OOo isn't
very good (the Finnish one contains hyphenation stuff!). I notice the
German page is better maintained. Causes confusion though: for Spanish
they have es_ES instead of ca_ES. Which one is right?
I'm not a language expert, suggestions for using the right language
files are very welcome!
