OK, but what does that have to do with Book Cleaner?

I may be wrong, but seem to remember that earlier versions of book cleaner had a bug where 'oe' came out as an emdash. This was because the oe unicode character was used to substitute for emdashes at some stage in the cleaning process. When it came to the replacement stage odd things happened.

Yes, ISTR that occured if you had the book language set to "English". As you know this (rather surprisingly) is the wrong choice in BD . "German" works the best for me.

If you look in the list of find what and replace what, you will see initially uni characters were used. I've stopped using uni characters as I'm not sure which ones nobody wants to ever use.

I am not sure either, but being French I would say that in roman, german and scandinavian languages at least the following characters are used:

All accented letters such as à, é, è , ë, ê, î, ï, ô, ü (german umlaut), û, etc.
oe (called "e dans l'o) as in oeuf, oeuvre, etc.
ñ (spanish "nina"
ç French cédille

Also, typographic rules in French (not sure whether they follow these rules in Italy or Spain) say that the english quotes (as in "quote") should be replaced by the opening and closing angle brackets or "guillemets", with a non-breaking space between the bracket and the word, in order to avoid widow/orphan words (both the brackets and the word should be on the next line if there is not room enough for them on a given line).

I am not sure that replacing english quotes by guillemets is at all possible using BD...

Robert, please read http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...t=11649&page=2 and that might answer your question about guillements.

Try setting it to German, then reinstalling the latest book cleaner files. (Just drag and drop them into the Book Cleaner directory.)
It's odd that you're still having this problem. It vanished for me at about Book cleaner 1.3.

Thanks for the replies. Patricia, I have tried what you suggested.... Its on German and I am using the BC 1.5 files.........I open BC, then enter the two commands for emdashes as per the wiki guide, then open my book. The emdashes work great but all words containing 'oe' get turned to emdashes too , eg: 'does' becomes 'd--s' (sorry can't do emdashes on here lol). Then I have to use find/replace and manually change every oe emdash back to an oe.

Can't see what Im doing wrong. I know this was an issue previously but also saw it was fixed in 1.5. Just wish I could get it to run without all oe going to emdash too, then it would be perfect.

HI JSWolf

Great thanks !!

I have been playing around with BD and found that if I set it to English and then load the book it will add emdashes and keep 'oe' correctly, but then English causes other small quirks, when I set it to German (as this is the preferred one) it puts in emdashes on 'oe' as well. Just thought I tell you in case it sheds light on something

Since you keep improving the Book Cleaner files, could you make a note including the date when you post a new version? When did version 1.5 get posted?

I have now tried loading books in other languages, all do the emdash and 'oe's too except English, but then I get other characters that don't work as English causes its own issues. I have no idea why mine is working differently to everyone else's.........I even removed it all and installed again, I am using the up to date files for it all, but it still does the same thing. very strange.

Any news on the new update Jon?
