Btw, I mixed that up with phonetic fuzzy search. Actually PHONETIC is used in Japanese environments, interacts with the input method engine (IME), and displays the phonetic characters of what was typed in the IME. Which btw is not the same that is displayed in the input cell after input confirmation, different inputs may produce identical characters. The IME state would have to be stored in the file format as well to make this function work. Eike -- Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements of spreadsheets. --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
