And thanks to Wayne for the pointer to your comment translation
program. It should prove useful to me. The reason I was putting the
English comments below the French ones was that I wasn't totally sure
iGoogle was translating everything perfectly, and J.P. and other French
authors probably like their French comments. I'll try your program out
and see how helpful it is for me. Perhaps if it put the English
comments below the French ones, then it might be a good thing to
actually check the revised code into svn, as it would help me at least,
and probably Wayne. Also, as those less linguistically challenged than
us, read and see mistakes, they could correct them, and eventually we
would end up with better comments for us poor English speakers. It
might be nice for the reverse to occur as well, so that English comments
could be translated into French.
Just my thoughts....
