Bug#609374: [xml/sgml-pkgs] Fwd: Bug#609374: release-notes: Please use typographic quotes (in French)

Hi Andreas,

The problem does not comme from the nestedquote character definitions, but from the quote template that should take into account the nestings. Please find attached a patch that should fix the bug.



this is caused by dblatex which for french documents uses the quote
characters “ (8220) and ” (8221) to delimit <quote> elements instead of
« (171) and » (187).  This could be changed by replacing the
"nestedstartquote" and "nestedendquote" definitions in dblatex file
appropriately.  However this is an upstream decision, thus let's ask
dblatex's author:


what do you think about this issue?  Do you agree to change the french
quote characters like proposed?  Any side effects?  By the way, the
original report refers to the release notes for the upcoming Debian
release "squeeze" and can be found at: http://bugs.debian.org/bug=609374

Regards, Andreas
