So England is not a European country after all? Ah, well... ;-)

How did you conclude that?

I was misled by the "something for our European visitors" part, because it sounds as if UK-based drobe magazine greeted its continental visitors as "European", thus virtually excluding England from Europe. I didn't think of the fact that there still are RISC OS users from all over the world who may visit this site. Very complicated... :-)

Nice to see English people once more thinking the United Kingdom is only made up of one part - England. :-(

Eh, what makes you think I'm English? :-) Sorry, I didn't want to offend anyone. But to my simple continental mind England, UK and Great Britain means the same. (But I know that it is not.) Please excuse that.

All the visitors from European countries may be interested in a show held in one of them. Surely it's your prejudices that caused you to assume that :-)

Anyway, we all know that all scottish people wear kilts and eat haggis, all irish people spend all day drinking, all welsh people mine coal and all english people eat fish and chips and cause riots at football matches.

Oh yeah, and all ignorant people make gross generalisations

Felnder & Braun of Easi/TechWriter fame? Anyone care to elaborate?

Feldner & Braun is the German distributor of Easi/TechWriter. They did a very good job of translating the whole software and the manual, and providing a high quality German dictionary.

By the way, you don't have to come to Germany just to see Martin and me. We will be coming to Wakefield, too ;-)

Steffen Huber (of CDBurn fame ;-))
