Re: Unicode typography in translations


Thanks for all the useful info.  I am very much in favour of using
unicode as much as possible.  But what happens if someone uses a
different locale encoding?  For example Danish is typically used with
UTF8 (LANGUAGE=da_DK.UTF-8), but can also be used with ISO-8859-1.
ISO-8859-1 does not have the ellipsis.  Will it work anyway, provided
the po-file specifies UTF-8 as its own encoding?

Best regards

Hello translators,


As a final note, I don't believe there are any technical reasons to
avoid Unicode these days,

… including for terminal output. There's no reason to refrain from
making this look nice as well.
