I guess I should though I can't say I understood everything Manuel wrote 
! I'm not very familiar with latex, using it trough lyx. Manuel, can you 
please tell me what I should do to get bullets displayed as bullets and 
not dashes in the converted PDF file ? I guess this has something to do 
with what you mentioned in your PS 
(\addto\extrasfrench{\providecommand{\og}{%etc), but I did not know what 
to do with it.
