       Usually when these 'strange characters' appear it's due to quotation
marks (single or double) or bold face type or or some other thing which
does not computer-translate to whatever program the viewer has -
            MsFt is ripe with adding special effects which aren't
compatible with anyone else  ;-(

       If you wish to see what is being hidden (?) in these 'strange
characters' send the document/e-mail/ ... whatever to a machine with MsFt's
latest program -
             as one of these mini-handhelds ... ... ...

       Good luck to you [I use to know this term in the Nordic language;
sorry, it eludes me for the moment]

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Unwanted chars in help
To: LibreOffice brukargruppe <>

In my copy of the LO Help (Norwegian, nynorsk) there are some
unwanted characters in the headwords list. Example: "redigera - X{  �J"
("redigera" = "edit").

I think the reason for these errors could be some missing closing tags
somewhere in the po files. Something like
(missing "/" ) perhaps.
Where do I start hunting and what should I've been looking for?

As I am a translator of these files, I could very well have done these
mistakes myself, but it does not help me anyway. Btw: I have seen these
errors in other translations than Norwegian nynorsk too.

Perhaps not the right place posting this, but I did not found a translators
or a documenters forum. Someone knows?
