Description glooop 2005-05-06 01:30:40 UTC
In the "X11 and Fonts" section of "Using UTF-8 with Gentoo" the word "utilise" in used (which is a french word, although it should be replace by "utilisent" to stick with french grammar ;) in the sentence "Many other applications utilise this flag". We should replace it by "use" or "utilize".

Reproducible: Always

Whether it´s a spelling "error" or not depends on whether you are British or American. ;p

utilise is an English English word, whereas American English uses utilize.
I don't think it matters, I will ask GDP members see if there's a necessarity to correct it.

Shame on me. I'll buy a new dictionary.
