Perfect. :-)

No problem. I don't think the acronyms are the most important thing in
the manual. ;-)

I will make a Dutch translation.  Actually, I already made the
translation...  But I translated the webpage (the HTML), which is
quite difficult to maintain after a while. A couple of days ago, I
found the Jabber.org's Quick Guide to DocBook XML[1].  I got
interested in it and I thought it would be a good idea to use DocBook
instead of regular (X)HTML for documentation.

I hope so. :-)

Maybe there should be a link to the DocBook sources in the Jabber User
Guide.  It could be placed in an appendix or so ("How to translate
this guide?") with a link to the Jabber DocBook Guide[1]. After all,
the Jabber User Guide is important for beginners to get started.  The
more it is translated, the more new users will join the "Jabberclub"!
