Ok, that's generally a good idea. I simply was afraid things would end
up so that we poor foreigners would have to write in italiano. It
takes me at least tree times longer to read or write in your (nice!)
language than to communicate in english (or in something, that
pretends to be english).

It seems that i was a bit excited when writing that (more spelling
errors than ever). Of course the program's name is LyX. ;-)

I do understand this very well. (And i hope that the wish to be
generous against the foreigners will be stronger than the wish to have
a most conveniant list.
