Thanks for your help, Pierre! :-)

Hehe, we did much of that for zh-TW already. :-) For example, we had
two computers side-by-side, one is a friend's computer running Chinese
Microsoft Word, one is my Linux machine running AbiWord, so we can
compare the two and revise zh-TW.po. I have also caught a few other
mistakes over the past few days. It may not be perfect, but I can
assure you that there is no gross errors like translating
"anti-aliasing fonts" to "non-nickname fonts" in Chinese... ;-)

Nevertheless, there are still a few entries (mainly error messages and
bullet types) that haven't been translated, or aren't very fluent.
If someone can help fix those, it would be much appreciated. :-)
Note that the Autotext entries are *intentionally* not translated.
On the other hand, it would be nice if both English and Chinese
autotext can co-exist, because we Chinese type both English and Chinese
documents. :-)

Thanks again,
