As somebody working on quality assurance I would always vote for hard
settings (choosing language by hand) should overrule soft settings
(scripts). But after a look on the HTML code you return I think I
understand what's happening. And now I agree that your way is the better
way because 'fixing' the issue would mean to return scripts and cookies
to the browser. (Or am I wrong?)

NO, i normally don't use StarOffice for browsing and I'm not gonna
recommend our browser to anybody else. (And I don't even think that I
gonna have a chat with my manager about it because I'm posting this on my
Sun account. ;-)

I'm not working on internet related topics but AFAIK our browser is no
real browser but a graphical web page editor that can browse HTML up to
standard 3.2. The language settings are normally read from StarOffice
itself. Using any 32bit M$ Windows you can plug the IE installed on the
system, means settings are called from IE internet options.

Yes, I agree.
