Very interesting Kari.
That post has got to help others around the world.
I use one language so it never entered my mind.
I learned something today so I'm happy.

Thanks Layback. I repeat that this most probably is not the cause for this OP's issue but a factor to consider in some other cases like this.

BTW, I exaggerated a bit ; I think I have seen something like 15 to 20 cases caused by wrong input language in past 5 years, not one per month.
