1) Have any of you ever had a publication (or product/manual combination)
rejected because it was written in English?

2) Out of curiosity, if the US _did_ make English "official," whose standards
do you suppose they'd use? Would the legislators pick a favorite dictionary?
Favorite syntax? Would they write their own? How have other countries with an
official language deal with the problem?

Loaded questions!
