Thanks for the report Mark. Here it shows up as a quoted string ( meaning the format specified in Preferences - font tab ) in both FB editor 5.2 ( PPC ) and in the beta 5.3 UB editor. It is not clear what the correct formatting should be, but failing a lurking issue, there doesn't appear to be a practical problem. The translator looks for quoted text after the def open and the format has no impact ( as noted in your post ) on its ability to succeed. Brian S.
