Hi & thanks for your feedback and pointer to this bug !
Exactly this is what I meant !!
Especially American developer mostly do not realize this difference
we are used here in old Europe !!!

One more remarks:
Today's world has become very small.

As a Swiss my native language is (Swiss) German and all our systems
do have Swiss German KBD's. All our systems are running in English and
location isn't Europe / Switzerland: It's somewhere in this small wide
world !!!


One more little complaint here is to the American stile of writing the
date as mm/dd/yy:

In my eyes a nonsense because it is more contra-productive in
recognizing and too, a reasonable sorting !!

Much better would be: yy(yy)/mm/yy to have proper chronologic
sequence ! ;-)

I had expected Novell being more open minded and knowing / respecting
this difference !?

Cheers, svobi
