Comment 207 for bug 221112

About a "short nbsp" in french, let's make it perfectly clear that there must be about a hundred professionnal typographists in the whole country who care about it - most of them not using Linux BTW - and the rest of the ~40 million computer users here don't give a shit about a "short nbsp" and don't even know what it is, feel perfectly happy with the "correct french" they write without it, and many of them just would like their fscking right [Ctrl] key back.

If a so thin minority of professional typographists that in no way represent the average french "Joe" user want this modifier, it's perfectly OK that they devise their own special layout for their on needs, but by no means impose it on the rest of us.
