#7098 new enhancement

Multiple entity codes in POT file for the same character

In the wordpress.pot file, two characters are represented by both their numbered and lettered HTML entities. These are:

Em-dash: the POT file contains both — and —

Right angle quote: the POT file contains both » and »

I'm not sure if it matters but it certainly is a little inconsistent.

Whoops... there are two more such cases I didn't even see:

Ellips: the POT file contains both … and …

Double right angle quote: the POT file contains both › and ›

I'm confident that these four are the only ones.

Inconsistent maybe, but I don't think it matters so much.

+1 for ... => … => …

And also, i think that wordpress strings should not use » (»), « («) › (›) ‹ (‹) becouse of the RTL support.

If we change Log out » => Log out users will still understand the meaning.

Same for ← and →.

We can change "← Back to %s" => "Back to %s" (wp-login.php:127).

  • Version changed from 3.2.1 to 2.5.1

Version number is used to track when the bug was introduced/reported.

June 5, 2008, that would be 2.5.1.

Makes sense to me. Maybe a translation team wants to review the idea.
