    Let me correct the French typo and add that there is actually two ways of
    translating "variant selector" when variant is a noun : « sélecteur de
    variante » (select one variant at the time) and « sélecteur de variantes »
    (select one or several variants at the time). The singular form is the
    official ISO 10646 (F) name.
