There are many "byte order marker" clauses in History.txt.

However, the official name is "byte order mark" (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark).

Hmm, a Google search for "byte order marker" with double quotes seems to indicate that both variations are used.

In fact, you are right. However, "byte order mark" is more popular...

Also Microsoft prefers this term: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd374101.aspx

Wikipedia, or Google search are not reliable references.

Unicode.org uses "byte order mark"

OK, I have changed it now in the help and history, although I think it's not really important.

Thanks, it was a good decision - now I just realized, that every English dictionary contains a "question mark" phrase (not a "question marker" one).


All "byte order markers" are now corected in History.txt. Some last survivors left:

1) right to left marker (4x in History.txt - unicode.org, w3.org and Wikipedia use "right-to-left mark" - with dashes in the middle)

2) closing markers '--' than opening markers (this whole phrase - 1x in History.txt)

3) line break marker (1x in History.txt)

4) UTF-8 byte marker (1x in History.txt)

5) Unicode marker (1x in History.txt)

Regards

OK, changed them!

There are still two where I don't know whether I should change it or not, especially because it's contained in an option value:

12.11.10 Added: wincmd.ini [Configuration] SelectionMarker="* " set marker for selected lines in file lists

12.02.09 Fixed: Sorting header: Sorting marker temporarily disappears when Ctrl+Clicking on multiple headers

I would rather not change the SelectionMarker option, because it would break backward compatibility. But I could change the descriptions...

I think that it's correct now.

A "mark" word means "a letter" (example: question mark).

A "marker" word means "a visible sign of something" (example: closed door is a marker of a closed shop).


SelectionMarker="* " - it's not a single letter (because it is * and space) - so it's not a mark. It's a visible sign of a line in a file list - so it's a marker.

Sorting marker is a visible sign, telling that the column is sorted - so it's a marker.


Maybe a native English speaker could settle.

As for me - fixed.
