I wasn't suggesting that Nova was a spanish word or that I know spanish for that matter. I wish I knew some spanish. My languages are Danish and English, with a good understanding of French and German and bi-directional understanding of Swedish and Norwegian. I was considering the word: Nova as a scientific (astronomical) word, derived from Latin, the feminine form of "novus" which means "new". BTW, your swedish "Jog protoa lita Svenska oxo" doesn't seem quite right, maybe a real swede can comment. :-) Habla espaniol? Johannes
