comment Spacing in french documents?
That didn't work for me, as I'm on TeXlive 2015. But your other trick, \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{AB}{\og\ignorespaces} and \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{BB}{\unskip\fg} is working for now.

comment xelatex + frenchb introduce extra spaces before some characters in lstlisting blocks
\shorthandon doesn't work with XeLaTeX, which is a shame because it is often convenient to compile with XeLaTeX when typing in foreign languages like French.

comment How to suppress the space before the colon, in French language?
Good suggestion, but doesn't work with XeLaTeX ... the log file suggests using \NoAutoSpacing instead.

comment wordcount by section when sections were formally known as chapter
For the record, the problem was caused by the presence of invisible "invalid characters".

comment Spacing in french documents?
You write, "You'll see that the spacing is the same." However, I get that the first « arrangement » has two spaces on the left-hand side and one space on the right-hand side, while the second one «arrangement» has one space on each side. Do you reproduce that? (Thanks)

comment Font encoding in LaTeX
@cfr That's a good question, I hadn't thought of it (scratches head), but I've just tested it (on a simple example) and the libertine package appears to work whether it's loaded at the start of the preamble or at the end.

comment Font encoding in LaTeX
this line was meant as an example of setting a font, which is usually done with the setmainfont command, but for the Libertine font there is a dedicated package that makes it easier to load.

comment Unexpected latex error: Text line contains an invalid character
"Sometimes you'd need to rewrite a paragraph to fix this." That's what I'd been doing, and it was driving mad: in a way relieved to find that it wasn't a completely insane thing to do... Thanks.

Thanks a lot! The second, improved version doesn't work for me either. Something on my setup must be interfering...

Your explanations are very useful. I'm sure I can make it work on my setup sooner or later! (I have the latest texlive, updated last week)
