    Used by up to 200,000 people in Mexico, a country whose population
    is mainly descended from Aztec and Maya Indians, the Microsoft
    program sugggested as alternatives for the word "Indian:"
    "man-eater" or "savage."

    Consulted for synonyms for "Western," the Spanish language program
    gave "Aryan," "white" and "civilized."  Lesbians were equated with
    "pervert" and "depraved person."
