Hi Anthony,

I noticed the split in the sentences, but wasn't sure if it that was usual
for html content to be translated like this. So left it as the script
outputted it.

I don't think it will be possible to remove the code tags from the mark up
sentences as they make the page semantic on the web. But maybe modifying
the script that pulls the strings from the mark up to ignore <code> tags
might make it a little easier. I that case the translation strings would
contain the <code> tags but translators could leave them?

I think this is a particularly code heavy site which makes this issue
worse. If anyone has any experience with this issue, it would be great to
hear how you overcame it.

Thank you,
