Another slight problem. I looked at the standard.ld file, and saw what I
had to translate. I found "page" and "chapter", which are translated to
"oldal" and "fejezet" in Hungarian. The problem is, that we put the number
before these words, with a dot after it:

Chapter 5 -> 5. fejezet (some books even use roman numerals here, like
V. fejezet, I'll have to look up what the most common way is)

page 24 -> 24. oldal

Can lout handle these? If yes, how do I indicate that these are to be
treated this way?
