Angle quotes patch
Other things I often need are em-dashes and ellipses (guess I’ll have to do something with my style). Typically I typeset them with HTML entities (like
…). The following is a patch that replaces the often-used HTML entities with their Unicode equivalents as you type (e.g.
©becomes ©). It also adds an option to
conf.xmland a checkbox to the Preferences window.
HTML entities patch
(Some additional autoformattings are thrown in for good measure, like replacing three dots with ellipsis.)
The patches probably don't belong in the trunk (I'd call that bloat), but em-dash lovers might just use them.
Upd.: the patches seemed to apply cleanly with logjam 4.5.1, but I haven't checked later versions.
