Dear Alain,

Can you help me with this please?

Section       7 Incompatibilités connues et remèdes

Appears to give some help here, Hélas - mon français - je parle
seulement un peu!, and google translator is not quite cutting it for
this one.

Is total avoidance called for, or are we ok inside \label{} ?

Then I suppose there are the other french babel options?

Paul
