This is definitely not spam!

Great; thanks!

Yes, only the developers can make changes to CVS.  Sending patches/files
here is fine, or alternatively, you could submit a patch via the sourceforge
system: <http://sf.net/projects/spambayes>

Great :)  It all looks fine, although I had to make a few size changes where
the French was larger than the English.  I've checked this in, so CVS users
ought to be able to set their desired language to fr_FR and have the dialogs
(mostly) in French!

It didn't matter for SpamBayes, but VC++ chokes on those, for some reason.
I've left them as the English versions, since we don't use it.

Nope - you're right in leaving those (well, it wouldn't matter if they
were).  They're just placeholds for dynamically generated text.

Thanks heaps for the contribution!
