It's Okay,

>Subversion reported conflicts for other reasons, so i applied it by hand. Also i tweaked
it to be consistent with the others. I we change the colon spacing, we should be consistent.
In French we have to put one blanc before and one blanc after the 
semi-colon <;>, the colon <:>, the question mark <?> and the exclamation

mark <!>...

That's why I did not do as the others ;-) .

I effectively had to resolve a conflict..;

>>Text strings like "Copyright", "Published", and "Search" are hardcoded into skin files
like site2xhtml.xsl. When creating web sites in languages other than English the web developer
is forced to create local versions of these skin files with the appropriated translations.
>>Instead, the DTD for the skinconf.xml should be improved to allow these translations
to be specified in this file. This would make Forrest much easier to use.
