	Good question; do you have a UI string from that section so we can try
to dig out the code that's doing it ? :-)

	Sure, I guess you'd need to get a windows build setup to hack on this;
Andras is prolly the best person to get some code pointers from, and
hang out on IRC to get help with the inevitable build problems ;-)
[ prolly best to build from libreoffice-3-5-0 I guess ].

	All the best,
