Of course, you're right. Can anybody (Martin, Sam ?) correct it? (I don't have
the time, sorry)

I think that I've taked the text from Word (two months ago I drawed in a paper
the goto dialog box of the Word of a friend, and I think that I copied the text
literally), so if a native english speaker can reformulate a bit the text, it
would be very nice.

Sorry for the inconveniences.
