Description Mike McLean 2003-07-16 23:27:34 EDT
* Cambridge-re0716.1

In many french translations the html entity   is appearing before colons.

I first noticed this in initscripts, but it happens a few places in anaconda as

Is there a translations component?

Bernd, Jean-Paul: Looks like the code to insert spaces has used a html entity in the software 
.po files.  You'll need to switch this back a real space " ".  Please update me as we progress 
through resolving this.

Erm, I guess I mentioned it, for the tool to replace the spaces with  s
goes the same as for all the other european-specific tools, these are only to be
applied to manual-files where you are sure the encoding is iso-8859-1. Please do
not apply any of these tools to software-files!

Sorry if I didn't make that clear enough.

Is the problem resolved?

Well from what I've seen most of the offenders have been inserted before ":"
(which is ok as french typographic rules require a space before : ; ? ! ie all
punctuation marks that have two elements)

The correct fix here is to replace these by non-breaking spaces (the unicode
glyph) because one doesn't want ever to go to line just before a punctuation mark.

Audrey has gone through the translate module and resolved these errors.
