Subject Re: french translation: character encoding
Date Wed, 05 May 2004 22:00:04 GMT
Thanks for the relevant information.
Sorry, I did not waited and now have 3 files updated using UTF-8.
For checking-in translated files; what do you suggest? 
I am tempted to start checking in as I go but will it be better 
to wait until I have at least something like ten files ready?
Thanks for the help.

The source encoding (xml) is mostly your decision. It just should be
consistent through the whole stuff. At least as target charset (for html) I'm
suggesting iso-8859-1 or -15 (with a tendence to -1, because it may be better
supported by clients), because it's simply smaller than utf-8. The
recoding is done by the transformation process, so that's not a problem.

An argument could be to use iso-8859-1 in source as well to keep source and
target consistent.
