    Hi,

    I am trying to customize a new WP site on my local system before I take it live. I am noticing a lot of <?php _e('various text'); ?>

    What are those about ? Is there a reason I sould use that instead of just writing in HTML ?

    I searched the Codex but couldn't find the right page.

    Thanks,
    Damon

    Thank you. I guess if I am not concerned about translation it is not really an issue.

    Merci Bien

    It's really only useful to theme and plugin makers that want their project to be able to be displayed in other languages.
