Note that:
- Dictionary and hyphenation patterns are usually shipped in the same 
package, but they are independent.
- Hyphenation patterns are in a file named hyph_en_US.dic
- If you get, from any source, another dictionary extension, you might 
want, instead of installing it, to unzip it (open it with any ZIP 
handling program, like 7-Zip), take only the file hyph_en_US.dic and 
overwrite the file hyph_en_US.dic from your OpenOffice installation; do 
this when OpenOffice is closed and the Quickstarter (OpenOffice icon in 
system tray) is not running, then reboot.
- Extension updates are currently disabled, so "check for updates" will 
always tell you that no extension updates are available.

Of course, if you find hyphenation patterns that work better we might 
want to include them in the next releases, so please give us the precise 
link to download them and we will check license compatibility and 
possibly include them.
