A quote that was so perfect that I just had to capture it here....

The context is not provided since I am not trying to slam the specific component (though one really could in this case), I just loved the quote:

This works fairly efficiently in most cases, and even looks good sometimes, but usually just looks bad, and in certain cases, completely wrong. So it's great for the developer that wants to get something working, but terrible for anyone doing something that is supposed to be robust.

Things work this way in software entirely too often, and in internationalization features more often, still.

This post has absolutely nothing to with Cathy or Goldie or Victoria; their names are mentioned here only to see if that mention leads to them seeing the blog and mentioning it at some point....
