Description Jon Harald Søby 2006-05-01 13:09:39 UTC
Recently a thousands separator was added to {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}. However, the
separator is "."; a . in numbers means nothing in Norwegian - except perhaps
version no. (like in MediaWiki 1.6.2). The correct thousands separator is a
space - preferrably using nbsp, as line breaks inside numbers is considered bad
typography. The decimal separator for ParserFunctions expressions is actually
also set to a ".", while that should correctly be ",". If those could be
changed, that'd be great.

Is this a request for norwegian wikis or a global one?

help you?

I'm going to suggest it's a Norweigan-specific one, since the separator's been
there since the word has, and I'll wager the number formatting functions for
Norweigan were updated not too long ago.

Changed to nbsp in trunk.
Comment 4 Jon Harald Søby 2006-05-02 09:45:30 UTC
Thank you! =)
Comment 5 Ulf Lunde 2006-05-02 13:00:28 UTC
This is already fixed in the Norwegian Wikipedia at nn.
But on nb {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} still contains a period.

Please note that both nynorsk (nn) and bokmål (nb) use the same conventions in
cases like this (e.g. non-breakable space as thousands separator), so when a fix
is made for one Norwegian Wikipedia, it can be applied also to the other one.

I assume you are speaking of the, which is exactly what I
fixed. was already using nbsp.
