Error in default German quotation marks

wulfila
I noticed these lines in \Engine\style\xhtml.css for Prince 8.1r3:
q:lang(de)::before { content: "\201E" }
q:lang(de)::after { content: "\201D" }

Shouldn't this be \201E and \201C, as described here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-English_usage_of_quotation_marks

and in other sources?

Yes, good catch! We will change this in the next release of Prince, thanks for letting us know.

We have fixed this in Prince 8.1 rev 4, thanks again for letting us know. :)

I installed Prince 9.0 rev 4 and noticed that xhtml.css again has incorrect quotation marks for German. Could it be that the fix was reverted?

Which platform are you running Prince on? Perhaps the fix was accidentally left out of one of the packages.
wulfila
Windows. I used prince-9.0r4-setup.exe.

Right, it looks like this change was omitted from the Windows install package by accident. :(

We will add it back in the next maintenance release.
wulfila
Ok, thanks. In the meantime it is easily fixed locally.

Right, today we have released Prince 9 rev 5, which should have the correct style sheets for the WIndows package this time! Thanks for reminding us. :)
