This is because i don't know how this file is encoded. Anyone?
Then i can force OSX to use that encoding. currently it fails with 
MacRoman and Windows Latin 1.
We really need to switch to Unicode every where ;)

The other translators are contributors and not authors (diff is 
well.... usually authors have CVS accounts).
Currently i only show the AUTHORS file in this Window. I could do the 
THANKS file too, but it's not really a priority. When i have the time 
i'll see if it is possible.
