Subject: smart quotes and languages like en-gb
Date: Sun, 28 Nov 2021 18:46:35 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87ilwcuq9w.fsf@gmx.us> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 404 bytes --]


I have noticed that smart quotes are not picked up for “long” languages,
like “en-gb”, since smart quotes are defined for “short” languages, like
“en”, in org-export-smart-quotes-alist.

The attached patch is an attempt at remedying this.  Not sure if it is the
best fix, though...

Test file:

    #+language: en-gb


Dung makes an excellent fertilizer
