Hi again, Yves,


I hope my first answer was of use to someone, as I realize I was not 
answering the question you asked.  And I don't know the answer as I'm 
still using OS 9.

But it brings up a question I've had for some time: What logic does 
RR/MC apply when converting a group of menu buttons to a Mac menubar? 
How does the interpreter determine whether to move a menuItem to the 
Apple or Applications menu?  For example, if I put a menuItem 
starting with "About" in my "Help" menu, it is placed in the Apple 
menu.  Suppose I were running a French version of Mac OS...would I 
then use the French word for "Help" or "About"?
