I don't mind, as long as there exist a work-around (which you provide in
that particular case).

Please find the file demexp.pot and fr.po attached to this email.

Thank you for the fix. I'm using now in my Makefile:

%.po: $(POTFILE)
        msgcat --output-file=$@ $@ $(POTFILE)
        po/fix-po-comments-for-ocaml-gettext $@ > address@hidden
        mv address@hidden $@

This works nice.

I know that PXP and maybe CDuce are using ulex, but I've never looked at
it. I'm leaving all those issues to others, that's why I'm using
external libraries. ;)

Second issue solved! :)
