Check on quotes


(Ruud Baars) #1

I am quite sure checking for paired quotes was ‘on’ in the Dutch LT. Somehow, it seems to be off now.

"Dat is gek!

Does not trigger any message.

Any idea what might have happened?

There are several quote characters, but this one is missing. That’s maybe because, at least in German, it’s also used in e.g. 3,5"-Diskette. As there are no floppy disks anymore, I’ll add it to both Dutch and German.

Ah… Since people don’t type ‘nice’ quotes in web texts, I do my very best to downgrade all strange combinations of character that show as a open or closing quote into the plain " or '.

I guess it is good to add it. Maybe even make an exception for " after a digit and before a space? " is also used as inch for lengths.
