I started checking and realised that 'sacrifice' was turning out 
correctly. So I retyped the words and they now come out fine.

Really don't know what happened there -- perhaps it was 
Macspeech Dictate, perhaps it was the strangeness with dvorak 
that seems to be fixed with 10.5.7. Anyway, thanks for the help 
-- your comment led me to work it out (or at least fix it).
