is the file in control of this.

If you make any changes pleases send me the file and I can commit to
CVS for the next release.

You will need to restart the webserver between changes to this file.

Also I beleive that file is currently a subset of possible messages
that need translating. Once you make it through that one I can
generate a more complete file.

You can also trnslate the help files by taking a file from

(for example Change_Colors.tex)

May a copy of it in


and translate that file. Then the translated file should appear when
clicking on the blu question marks. (The Change colors one appears in
the PREF screen, right beside the 'Change Color Scheme')

The left one is not easy to change, but the right image can be
controlled by creating an image in 


With the name of your domain as the file name.
