I love your plugin, I installed it in all of my blog (granted, it sometimes mess up with computer code).
I request the following feature:
For French, add a narrow no-break space (U+202F) before an exclamation mark or a question mark. If there is already a space, replace it.
Code-wise, I suggest this:
– Delimiting the perimeter: a way to ensure the element is in French. Check that either “lang” or “xml:lang” is present/inherited and that the attribute is either “fr” ou starts with “fr-“.
[^\u202F]([!?]) => \u202F\1(if there is no narrow no-break space, add it)
[\u2009 ]\u202F([!?]) => \u202F\1(if there is a regular or thin space before the narrow no-break, delete it)
This could probably be optimized.
This could later be extended to more rules. I will not list them all here, one thing at a time 🙂
Thank you for taking time to consider it.
