in template.php function tpl_youarehere(), change the line:
echo '<span class="bchead">'.$lang['youarehere'].': </span>';
to (ie. remove the colon and trailing space)
echo '<span class="bchead">'.$lang['youarehere'].'</span>';
And update all language files $lang['youarehere'] to include the colon, or whatever suites the particular language, and trailing space.
Similar changes can be done for tpl_breadcrumbs().
This makes only sense if all other similar occurrences are treated the same way: "Last modified", "Logged in as", ... (I probably missed one or two!?)
Any rationale for such a change?
Because does not have the same meaning in all languages - or more importantly, a different character may be more appropriate in other languages.
What is the rationale for not including it in the language string?
apparently colon characters are stripped from comments? That should have said "Because colon does not..."
This is a useful change?
@me: are there more occurrences?
