Description Mark Cooke 2002-08-25 18:56:31 EDT

Description of problem:
This is probally being nit picky, 
I have Installed using only United Kingdom settings, and 
as the spelling is completely different between America and the UK, Evolution
sets up the default spelling as 'en', this for some reason still uses the
American language spelling.
If set to 'en_gb', the spelling then works perfectly for United Kingdom.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Spell checking language is wrongly set for the United Kingdom, to 'en'
2.Altered to 'en_gb'
3.Now spell checks in UK, rather than American.

Actual Results:  spelling works for correct country.

Additional info:

I know this is generally a nit picky bug, but it took me ages to try to find
what the exact setting for evo should be, IMHO, is you install to United
Kingdom, then this should also setup things like evolution as well, or at least
evo gets the language correct from the time zone settings.
And yes my spelling is rubbish :-)

1.2.x handles these settings much differently.
