    Carl,
   
   most of these changes are not visible in the office suite itself.
   At least I couldn't find them where I expected them
   
   They are part of the index for the Help, but they show correct in the Help from the suite itself.
   
   They caused problems however with translating when they are imported into Pootle.
   Pootle is the program used for translations from en-us to other languages.
   
   In Pootle they generate unwanted spaces in the strings. Because of that the strings
   in Pootle generate in their turn warnings and failed checks.
   These warnings and failed checks have to be corrected by the translators.
   
   By removing these superfluous spaces strings will be correct in Pootle and won't raise warnings and failed checks anymore.
   
   The superfluous spaces were, probably accidentally, inserted in the past when people, for reasons of readability,
   added them to the original files that then were imported into Pootle and caused this problem, probably without the original
   authors knowing of it.
   
   Removing the white spaces will lighten the "burden" for translators to correct the caused problems.
   
   Other removed white space were truncated strings (probably also for reasons of readability in the original file in the past) en
   wrongful placed spaces (for instance at end of sentence but before end-tag).
   
   One example of a truncated string in the Help for Calc is:
   "Example: Cell E5 contains the text "Europe". Below, in cell E6, is the value 100 and in cell E7 the value 200. If the Automatically find column and row labels box is marked, you can write the following formula in cell A1: =SUM(Europe)."
   which shows correct in the Help, but does not in Pootle.
   
   In Pootle:
   " <emph>Example</emph>: Cell E5 contains the text "Europe". Below, in cell E6, is the value 100 and in cell E7 the value 200. If the <emph>Automatically find column and row labels</emph> box is marked, you can write the following formula in cell A1: =SUM(Europe)."
   
   Note the excessive spaces before <emph>Example</emph>
   
   I suppose Mechtilde and Mathias have more insight on the technical details, since I'm not really a "techie"

   Where would I look in the office to see the effect of this change?
