Any of you Linux-enabled translators have a handle on whether Open Office in its Norwegian version now incorporates a spell-checker, thesaurus and other goodies? My current version 1.1.3. (?) sure doesn't.

Just a note of thanks to Robert and Marc.
Yngve.

For spellcheck, thesaurus and hyphenation have you tried DicOOo at:

File>Autopilot>Install new dictionaries

Both Bokmål and Nynorsk are there on my English version.

Yngve,

Spelling checker: yes, both Nynorsk and Bokmaal (rumour has it that the availability of both for OpenOffice.org forced Microsoft to offer both for MS Office). Hyphenation and Thesaurus, apparently not (yet).

You may need to install the spelling dictionaries separately. Download from http://lingucomponent.openoffice.org/hyph_dic.html.
