Well, it may seems weird (I'm french... ;)), but I'm very bad when I
translate my own texts (because my english is really bad... ;_;). Feel
free to make your own version and I'll be pleased to link it up.  You
can use the OOo windows french page for the OOo Linux french page, it's
almost the same thing.

Which dialog box? OOo?
In the document, I've tryed to have the same font in the windows manager
and the software. For Mozilla and OOo, it seems they are there own
fonts, and I still don't know how to normalise everyone.
Since I don't use gnome, I have no clue about gnome-terminal (gnome
version of xterm/rxvt/kterm?)

for xterm and rxvt, you must fix the font at start, like:
xterm -sb -sl 500 -j -ls -fn 7x14 (small)
xterm -sb -sl 500 -j -ls -fn 10x20 (large)

I think gnome-terminal will have similar options.

For OOo, the UI font seems fixed, and the replacement font size can't be
set with the option menu (or I've missed the tips)
About Mozilla, I've changed the UI font once, but I don't remember how
If anyone have a clue, I'm looking for it ;)
