No, we should not need to modify any code. From a programmer point of view and probable organization of binary files for the Firefox program, both should be separated, and should exist separated. Looks promissing! My "mmm" with a smile was something to tell "I am thinking and liking of what you found".

Good luck on your quest. I'd like to hear more on how it works out.

Also, if the Basilisk us-EN files are similar structured as the Fx ones, you might even be able to save a lot of time by running a text diff program on the Basilisk and Fx ones to pin-point which parts can be moved over and which might need to be added?

Thinking on this a bit more, if you have knowledge of a programming or scripting language on your desktop, e.g., Linux sh, Windows Power Shell, Python, &c with Python being my preference, this task could be made much, much simpler (and repeatable) since we're only dealing with text files. Below is a pseudo code description of the programming logic involved.

1. Both Basilisk and Fx Portuguese dtd files are located in same folders/directories
2. Basilisk locale code is en-US and Fx Portuguese locale code is pt-PT
3. Bas sort for Basilisk, PT short for Fx Portuguese


2 sets of folders containing the dtd files of Fx Portuguese (pt-PT) and Basilisk (en-US)

Begin Pseudo code:

while (Bas folder exist in Bas folder list) do {
  if (Bas folder !exist in PT) {
    log full pathname of missing PT folder
    skip to next Bas folder
  while (Bas dtd file exist in Bas file list) do {		
    if (Bas dtd file !exist in PT) {
      log full pathname of missing PT file
      skip to next Bas dtd file
    while ('<!ENTITY' line exist in Bas dtd file) do {
      if ('<!ENTITY' line !exist in PT dtd file {
        log full pathname of PT dtd file and missing '<!ENTITY' line
        skip to next '<!ENTITY' line
      replace Bas '<!ENTITY' line with PT '<!ENTITY' line

I'm sure there is stuff I'm missing, not the least of which is the file operations (opening, reading, writing, closing), but this should give you an idea.

Okay, after all that AND assuming file folder and file structures are the same, you should probably simply try doing a replace of all dtd files on Basilisk with that of Fx Portuguese. This assumes you've done a suitable backup beforehand.
