Cool. I'm not directly involved with any of them any more, but hope
someone else will see the potensial. :)

Do you know where the question marks shown in "st?" and "f?" come
from? Look like some encoding bug to me?

I would recommend the debian package aspell-no instead.

It is probably correct. 'no' is the old code, 'nb' is the new code
('nn' is another norwegian language code).

There are two norwegian variants/languages:
Norwegian Bokmål - 'nb' (used to be 'no')
Norwegian Nynorsk - 'nn'

Could be. Must be a bug in the dictionary.

I do not know. The Norwegian dictionary are now on Alioth,
<URL:https://alioth.debian.org/projects/spell-norwegian/>. It just
moved there, and I'm not sure if the package is ready for a new
release at the moment. I would recommend the Debian package instead
of building your own.
