Explanation:
Is it possible you are experiencing a vowel conversion problem on your computer or is it the HMTL encoding when writing on these pages? In your other question about blonds the specific Scandinavian letter "ø" was missing.

If you think it might be a vowel conversion problem (happens when you lack some files in your word processor), then "ver kort" might be "vær kort" and it would mean a weather map showing the current or expected weather trends, much in use in Norway where latitude and altitude combine to give rapid and unexpected weather changes. Hope it helps you out, Carole.

  -> Are we trying to help Cathal? If we are let's look at all possibilities also that his source material has been altered. Go and see his other questions about blonds you'll get my point.
