No offense was intended. However, if I had to figure out which words were offensive in every part of the world, I would never be able to write anything. The term balkanization was used and is used by all the major news agencies, analysts, politicians, etc. to refer to a fragmentation. If it's good enough for them, I don't see why I can't use the term. Being overly "politically correct" stifles the free exchange of ideas.

BTW, I know some words in Spanish that are acceptable in Mexico, but are considered obscene in Spain. Should I not use those words when speaking to someone from Mexico?

I just wanted to point out to people who are not following the IDPF issue tracker that dictionary support seems to be going places. This is slowly restoring my confidence in the IDPF. We really need dictionary support.

I use the dictionary all the time on my Cybook. Still, I wish it were touchscreen, like my EB1150. MUCH easier. Guess we still can't have it all...

I won't go with the Cybook epub firmware until there is dictionary support.
