Cathedral (top) image placement and coordinates[edit]

There have been various attempts to fit the cathedral image on top so that it wouldn't break page setup (conflicts with ToC when aligned on the left), but in my opinion (and probably Attilios' too) the result of its alignement on the right just below the infobox is somewhat ugly, ackward at least. It would be nice to have an image on top for sure (other than the CoA), but it would look much better within the infobox, unfortunately the "Swiss Town" infobox seems to be unappropriate for that without very non-standard markup.

As for the coordinates in the first paragraph (which are already stated in the infobox actually), I moved them to the header using the "CoorHeader" template, I think it looks better so.

In any case, it would probably be wiser to discuss further edits here concerning these two points. What do you think ?

You seem to know what you are talking about and seem concerned to improve the page (I have no technical skills). I say, do what you think is best. Good to see only one picture of the metro. Trompeta 14:32, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm doing by best indeed, but since I'm rather new to Wikipedia editing, I only apply WP:BOLD with care. Your comment makes me a little more confortable with this though :) Matthieu Houriet 00:33, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Update: The Infobox Swiss town template was edited today and now includes the CoorHeader template, so they can no longer be used together (overlap). Consequently, I commented out the CoorHeader template in the article. I didn't remove it for now because it's only testing (see rev. history of the template).

Language[edit]

This is the first time I read that the French of Switzerland belongs to the Franco-Provençal group of languages; perhaps that used to be the case but surely not any more, not even in the Gros de Vaud. I always thought of it simply as Swiss Romand with some influences from the Savoie and some German additions dating from the Bernese occupation and the influx of German wives and 'suisse alémanique'. Can anyone provide a small lexicon? The only one that comes to mind is 'fada' instead of 'fou' for 'crazy'. Other words like chenil (mess) or étagère (shelf) are not (are they?) specifically of Franco-Provencal origine. Trompeta 11:14, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Galleries[edit]

There's a lot of activity in the art galleries section. On March 12 Vdubner added the Dubner gallery. I'd suggest to remove the category altogether as it is clear this is only ()ab)used for self-advertisement. Pkoppenb (talk) 13:13, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Errors with most articles on Swiss cities[edit]

At the moment, all Swiss articles seem to suffer from the same problem. To begin with, would someone please how to edit the population figure in the infobox? The line with population that comes up when clicking on edit is not the one actually displayed in the infobox, the latter is not possible to access in any way I've discovered. For most cities, the population figure shown come with a reference (not found anywhere in the editable version) that does not contain any data to support the population. Quite often there's a different population figure given in the text. In other words, most articles in Swiss cities suffer from three problems:

- A population figure that it is not possible to edit.
- This population figure is usually unsourced (the source provided does not support the claim)
- A different population figure is often found in the main body of the article.

Suggest you take this to Template_talk:Infobox_Swiss_town - the population figure's taken from a 'municipality code' field in the template and comparing it with some dataset - I don't know enough to help here and suspect that'll be a better place to ask. --Peeky44 What's on your mind? 00:23, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
