DATHeader - just released

DATHeader - just released
Based on the items below I updated DATHeader today.
You can download as usual from DATHeader homepage.

Please leave your comments to this version as answer to this post - thanks.

I like to sum up here my and hopefully your ideas for improvements of DATHeader. Or, if you say your ideas are not good please also leave a comment. The result should be to improve DATHeader for better work.

Based on the current origin of this part (http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg...s/x582.dat) I think it might be worth to check for the origin to be inside the bounding box. If not give a warning. (Already coded in my develop version).

Based on the current comment on this part (http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg.../u9292.dat) I think it might be worth to check from the end of the file to the first occurence of a real line for only line breaks and delete those empty lines.
DATHeader write only one CR_LF after the last line with content if it is saved. So it is only necessary to detect those unnecessary lines and present the result to the user.
Check for those empty lines is now also implemented (Already coded in my develop version).

Based on the current comments on this part (http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg...47326c.dat) further documented in the thread http://forums.ldraw.org/showthread.php?t...0#pid11690 I think it might be worth to implement a basic language check for at least some common wrongly used words like "color vs. colour", "gray vs. grey". The words to check should be in a separate file, so we can easily extend the list of words. (Already coded in my develop version).
I did not know that it is sooo different: http://www.statsci.org/smyth/ozus.html. There are still more pages about this issue so maybe we need a complete dictionary in australian english that I should use in DATHeader.

While working on parts that should use pattern from another part it found it anoying to seach for the data of the pattern that should be integrated into the part. So I added a infobox where the dimensions of the bounding box and the center of the bounding box is noticed, so I only need to open this file in DATHeader and have the values that i need to calculate the position and the zoomlevel. (Already coded in my develop version).
