Hy everyone !

     * (2) You're referring to "Document" ... tough question. I don't
       know whether "Document Type" (left side) and "File Format" is an

I agree

     * (3) I also like "Open" better, since it clearly says what will
       happen - much better than OK. By the way, the very last dialog
       styleguide (attempt) put the Help on the left side ...

I agree too

     * The dialog has now a very good structure - but might it be
       convenient for people to have an "All" on the left side that
       contains all file types?

I think it is for one reason. Sometimes (not often I think), people get
presention files (example), and they not always know what it is : Someone
can have sent it to them without explaining "Hy it's a presentation" or "Hy,
it's a text document". THey just get the document. Just for this reason, and
because I think it should'nt be very complicated to add, I think there
should be an "Any" section on the left.

Then, I think it's important to choose the order of the items in the two
parts (it can reduce the amount of time to find the good format) : I think
that order them by "popularity" is good :

Document type part:

    - Text Document
    - Spreadsheet Slideshow
    - Presentation Slideshow
    - Web Document
    - Drawing
    - Formula

File format part :
    - Open Document
    - Microsoft Word 2003 xml (.doc)
    - Microsoft Word 2007 (.docx)

As you can see, I indicate file extension as it's always significant for a
lot of people.


PS : Scuse for my so bad English... Like a lot of French people, I'm not
bright with other languages.
