Request for correction of typo in two items in fr

The superscript ² in two items instead of NBSP is a typo:



I’m very sorry and apologize.

We kindly request TC to correct this, replacing ² by NBSP like in "{0} milligrammes".

Once corrected, please count as many votes as you will find for the other corresponding items, as these typos prevented other submitters from upvoting these two items.

Brief explanation why the typos happened

These typos happened because I did these edits in the GUI instead of uploading the XML data, and because I was then on an old Mac, where the keyboard layout is not updated yet as I’m developing for Windows first, then porting to Mac OS X and to Linux. The outdated layout still has NBSP on Shift+ROption instead ROption. On Windows version, NBSP is on AltGr+Space (and NNBSP on Alt[key, not functionality]+Space). The superscript ² is the dead character of the group selector (selecting group 2, and group 3 on double-press, group n when followed by digit n, up to group 11 with digit 1). But this dead key turned out not to be that important, so it was moved to AltGr+key BKSL (C12 on ISO keyboards, that the layout is for).

So I forgot that I was on the Mac instead of Windows, muscle memory did its job and I overlooked the mess. I remember having
corrected ² elsewhere as it happened, though.

My apologies.
