Tagalog spell checking (was Re: [lingu-dev] dictionaries distributed as extension with OOo 3.0 (Beta))

I just got curious about this Tagalog issue.
Thus I grabbed s DEV300m10 office and downloaded the dictionary.
For me it just works fine... And I was using the correct language
attribute as well.

However since DicOOo 1.8 seems not to work with DEV300m10 I copied the
dictionary files manually to the respective installation dictionary
(office-DEV300m10_non-pro\OpenOffice.org\Basis 3.0\share\dict\ooo) and
added the respective lines to the dictionary.lst:

DICT tl PH tl_PH
THES tl PH th_pl_PL_v2

No problem found. Everything is working as it should...
Even language guessing is doing fine. :-)

Can you give it a try as well?

If you have a version with a functional Dictionary Wizard there should
be no problems at all...
