This plugin adds non-breaking spaces required by the French language in the content, excerpt, comments, and text widget — skipping over pre-formatted code blocks, styles and scripts.

If the <!--:fr--> HTML tag is found (used by some multilingual plugins), non-breaking spaces are added only between the <!--:fr--> and <!--:--> HTML tags.

There are no plugin settings — simply install and activate the plugin.
