Hey -

I'm looking up info about a particular player, and was wondering if anybody knew what language this was so that I could run it through a translator? The only stuff I can figure out is the stuff that I already know;)

http://www.i.kth.se/i00_mrp/rafael_nadal.htm

I would have put it in one of the tennis forums, but I'm not asking a tennis related question :p That, and more people read this than the mens tennis forum.

Thanks for any help!

Well really; why the hell would I have been going to sites where I can't speak the language? Why would I have gone to a Sweedish site before? I'm glad that some of you have found it just so amusing that I didn't know what .se was, and I'm glad that it's cushioned your egos to look down on me because I did not... but the world does not revolve around Europe, and not everybody lives there, and not everybody knows the ends of urls for every countrt/language. Sheesh, and it's Americans who get the stereotype of being egocentric? Ha, my bad.

Not directed at you Crow, just some random agitation.


Marri - thank you very much! :)
