	Well - this is fun indeed :-) I strongly suggest that we start to
create a compile-time regression test based on calc's (see sc/qa/unit/)
that will automatically create writer, populate it with a number of
sample texts - and then run the counting code, and verify the output.

	Right - we need regression tests for all these corner cases - so we get
the right result :-)

	Anyone particularly brave that feels able to replicate the calc
regression tests for writer out there ?
