There's something that I've always wondered about: IIRC, there're two norwegian official languages, bokmal and nyorsk (though I don't know if they're spelled right like this O:-)). What are their differences? I'm sure that spoken they are quite different, but swedish and danish look very similar to me, and I suppose that bokmal and nyorsk can't be so much different from them :-) -- Roberto Suarez Soto
