Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

comment Why should I NOT update to Mavericks?
I'm sure there's a good question in here that fits with our Q&A format, but questions that work well here do have a single correct answer. So this sounds more like an invitation to discussion than a question that has an actual answer.

comment Why should I NOT update to Mavericks?
I think I'm downgrading back to ML. Sadly. iMovie HD is way too crashy under Mavericks, and I use it on a weekly basis. I have no interest in learning the bizarre workflow for the new, "improved" iMovie.

comment Can I change the default music player app on my iPhone? If so, how?
Yes, this is an answer: the answer here is "No." But answers need more explanation: how do you know it is not possible.

comment How many monitors can be hooked up to a Mac Mini?
2 Thunderbolt displays might be the limit, but there's also the HDMI port… can you use it while you're also using the Thunderbolt port?

comment How to run old AirPort Utils 5.x on MacOS X maverics?
Additionally, the new one can't control older Airport devices! I just discovered that 5.6 won't run, but 6 won't work with my Airport. Did I just lock myself out of my device by upgrading?

comment If I update to Mavericks, will I be able to boot from USB?
This might be an answer, but it isn't clear what you mean. Please edit your answer to explain better.

comment Did Mavericks change the Mac's color profiles?
This is an answer, not a comment. The question is whether color profiles changed. This user reports that yes, color profiles changed.

comment Diagnosing what's wrong with “vintage” iMac
In what universe is a 2007 iMac "vintage"?!? I'm still running a 2003 eMac. Vintage Macs are the original all-in-one. Or at least something from the pre-clone era.

You'll get better answers if you flesh out what you're hoping to accomplish and don't just use acronyms.
