( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I also think the problem is the problem: For example "Email", it is a german word indeed that exists in the DUDEN(1998): it equals Emaille, which _is_ enamel. It is completely correct to interpret it that way. You can't tell for sure whether the occurence of "Email" means electronic mail or that enamel stuff.

You'll need to define a limited set of words to be replaced beforehand ("Which English terms are known to be used frequently") and to replace them during parser work won't be a problem.

It'll help and be in the sense of the WAI to put a disclaimer on some home page that asks users to report aural-rendering problems...

    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, even though I didn't write any code :)
    [Corion]: But at least I have a plan of action to move the site to https, played some (free!) VR games with friends and watched the plans for the next German Perl workshop progress ;)
    [Corion]: AltSpace VR is amazingly good - highly polished and with some of the games you get for free what you'd pay EUR 20 or EUR 40 otherwise
    [Corion]: But maybe it's also due to that I play with friends, which makes a game more enjoyable anyway ;)
    [Corion]: Oh - I released a new version of some module, thanks to a pull request. But I don't consider "update Makefile.PL" and "update author tests" as "writing code" ;-D
