Patch: XT9 improved punctuation handling

Your rating: None Average: 5 (4 votes)

Improve handling of special characters with XT9 (predictive text input). The patch adds special rules for braces, typographical quotation marks, colons, ellipsis ("..."), etc. Some extra rules are added for nuances of the French and German grammar rules.

The stock XT9's handling of special characters leaves quite a lot to be wished for. This patch tries to improve it a little bit but it is still far from perfect. For example, I didn't find a way (yet?) to automatically add closing braces and place the cursor in between.
