Hi all,

greetings from BachoTeX.

With Jean-Michel, we found out that there is the unsuitable setting
for French nested quotation marks in lang-def.mkiv (TL 2018):

   \c!leftquote=\leftguillemot,
   \c!rightquote=\rightguillemot,

After discussion (also with Damian) the better and most frequently used
setting should be the following:

   \c!leftquote=\upperleftdoublesixquote,
   \c!rightquote=\upperrightdoubleninequote,

%%%%%%
\installlanguage
  [\s!fr]
  [\c!spacing=\v!packed,
   \c!leftsentence=\emdash,
   \c!rightsentence=\emdash,
   \c!leftsubsentence=\emdash,
   \c!rightsubsentence=\emdash,
   \c!leftquote=\upperleftdoublesixquote,
   \c!rightquote=\upperrightdoubleninequote,
   \c!leftquotation=\leftguillemot,
   \c!rightquotation=\rightguillemot,
   \c!date={\v!day:mnem,\v!space,\v!month,\v!space,\v!year}]
%%%%%%

Would somebody check it and change it in newer versions?

The best,

Tomáš
