user defined dictionaries

Girard Aquino-2

hi. i was wondering about the user defined dictionaries and how it can
be a medium for users to contribute to the development of their own
language.

Users who would like to help in expanding the word list for their
particular dictionary/spell checker language, would find it easier if
they could add user defined dictionaries and then export whatever list
they may be able to accumulate so that it can be added to the current
.dic file available at the OOo wiki. this is something that OOo already
provides. However, there seems to be a problem with how the user defined
dictionary is saved as evident in the screenshot below.

Is this a problem with the text editor or note/word pad, or the way OOo
saves user defined dictionaries? If we could find a way to change the
way the user defined dictionaries are displayed, then it would be much
easier for willing users to help in the development of their own
respective language. that way, when doing a spell check, and they
encounter words that aren't included, they could just add them to the
user defined dictionary for their language, and when they gather a lot,
export this into a text file or something, which could be added to the
wordlist for their particular language.

I wonder about this since opening the .dic file for tl_ph gives me this:
(which doesn't have the little small cute rectangular boxes in the image
above)
