Possibly I understood nothing of what was proposed...

Here is what I understood.

I understood the message would be displayed in my email only in the 
language of my browser. Which would basically mean for me to display to 
me the explanation and announcement in french only, and only the link to 
the french quarto.

If this is so, sorry, but I do not support this at all.

I do not see why I would get only the link in french, when I would also 
been interested in the link in english.
When I use my husband computer, the browser is in english, when would I 
not get the french link ?
If I am in visit in Finland and I connect from an internet cafe, what is 
my interest in getting it in finnish ?
And what happens for all browsers where the language is set in a 
language not covered by Quarto.

This is what I understood was suggested.

If I was wrong, I apology for not understanding
