	Please discipline your mailer or newsreader to eschew html.

	I concur with the content, and have a suggestion. 

	It ought not to be all that hard to get a list of languages by 
number of computer users. Given that, surely one could include only the 
top five (including or excluding English), plus directions in each saying 
how to get the rest.

	There are certainly monolingual users in North America, alas!; 
but they should be pretty well taken care of by the default to English. 

	Elsewhere, people learn others in school if not before -- and the 
less widespread their own language, the more others they learn.
