Cedilla vs. Comma[edit]

  • "right" - ș ț (with comma)
  • "wrong" - ş ţ (with cedilla)

t and s with a comma are official and 'more correct', but aren't widely supported and often look like crap in some browsers and even notepad, and may not even display in wordpad. The characters with cedillas, however, generally appear correctly and are even what's used in Windows' Romanian keyboard layouts. Certain websites use cedillas where others use commas. Etc.

Romanian Wikipedia is now progressing to replace s-cedilla and t-cedilla with s-comma and t-comma. This is a strong sign that we should do the same. -- Prince Kassad 09:39, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Even common unicode fonts don't display ș and ț in wordpad. Lucida Sans Unicode, Arial Unicode MS... Out of about 20 to 30 fonts tested, including courier new and times new roman, the only ones I can find that display them at all are Palatino Linotype, Sylfaen, Tahoma and Code2000. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 10:41, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Indeed they don't... if you don't install the Romanian support update for Windows XP. -- Prince Kassad 19:30, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Adjective templates[edit]

@Robbie SWE, Word dewd544 and anyone else watching this page: {{ro-decl-adj}} now supports a new, simpler format which can replace the other declension templates in Category:Romanian adjective inflection-table templates. See the documentation page for an explanation of the new usage.

This could be also applied to {{ro-adj}}, to make it more similar to other Romance templates. It would use the same parameters and would display like this:

bun m, n (feminine singular bună, masculine plural buni, feminine and neuter plural bune)

Does anyone object to changing this? I think the current format, showing the number of forms, is unintuitive and not very useful. Redboywild (talk) 11:46, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

@Redboywild you have my full support - I think it's a major improvement. Nice work! --Robbie SWE (talk) 17:49, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Redboywild (talk) 06:47, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
I've now enabled the new format for the headword template and will start to update the entries. Redboywild (talk) 08:54, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
