Geneva Tax Authorities Distribute Mozilla 1.2.1 to Taxpayers

Saturday February 15th, 2003

The German Heise magazine is reporting that all taxpayers in the Swiss canton of Geneva are being given a CD which includes a French version of Mozilla 1.2.1. The CD also includes GEtax 2002, a tax declaration program, and 1.0.1.

Though the Heise article is in German, a rough English translation is available courtesy of Google. Thanks to johann_p for the news.

I'm glad to know about the styles feature in Word. Should I have to use it much, I'll know where to look. IMO it is definitely more discoverable in OO.o, though. You said Word has "many of the features" that I mentioned, but in fact you only described it as having that one. The autocomplete in Word you described is not at all what I mean. Every word processor I've used since at latest WP 7 (including OO.o writer) has that. OO.o writer (and spreadsheet, where it can also be very useful--or annoying) both offer to autocomplete *any* word of five (approx) or more characters that you type. So if I type "curmudgeon" and use the word again, by the time I type "curm" (or possibly just "cur") I can just hit enter and get the rest of that long and tricky word filled in. Note for users: if you have the spell-as-you-go feature on, it will only offer as autocomplete suggestions words it thinks are spelled correctly or has been told are ok (Right click > Add...).

As in word, OO.o also has the ability to expand user-defined abbreviations as you type, and it corrects common spelling mistakes automatically. I don't think I've seen what you mean about autocompleting dates, but OO.o doesn't do anything with that (though of course you can insert dates in various formats).
