In most languages, quotes are handled by using “ and ” characters. But in French we use “les guillemets” (« and »). If you use an inline quotation element (q) or a blockquote, this is handled automatically for you.

Currency usage

In French, the €-sign is placed after the value (e.g. 25€). In English and Dutch the euro sign is in front of the value.

Spelling & capitalisation

When using, English we use UK spelling as opposed to US spelling.

Title casing

We don’t use title casing. Titles are not title cased.
