Thank you.  We'll fix "suomi".  But for "hyvää", I'm not
sure.  That part is not a normal setence but is a listing of
words saying hello, and "," is just a separator of each
independent item.  If that file is written in <TABLE> of
HTML, perhaps we'll format it as this:

<TR><TD>Finnish</TD><TD>suomi</TD><TD>Hei</TD><TD>Hyvää päivää</TD></TR>

Should we downcase "Hyvää" in that case?
