Éponine's name

Postby Swamp Adder » Wed Aug 11, 2010 1:02 am

Not sure where is the proper place to ask this.

This board's software automatically puts an accent on Éponine's name. But in every edition of the Brick I've seen her name has no accent. Could someone explain what's up with that?

Thanks!

According to some French conventions of spelling and typography, it's permissible to omit accents on capital letters.
[Dieu] entend ta voix, ô fille des hommes! aussi bien que celle des constellations; car rien n'est petit pour celui devant lequel rien n'est grand.
