Just noticed from ide/src/design/ that,and was wondering what's the advantage using $ before string literals?

Hi Sam,

This is for internationalization purposes.

Strings that are meant to be internationalized have $ before them, and they will show up in the translation templates (the .pot files).
It is also possible to specify a context this way: $"context"."English string"

I thought I emailed you about the translations before? :)

Check out the translation system @

Cheers! :D
