I, too, consider that it'd be normal to have Ispelling enabled by

The only error I have with Flyspell (with Aspell) is that, in French,
such a correct sentence:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Peut-on avoir un tiret entre deux mots ?
(May we have a dash between two words?)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

gets underlined at "Peut-on" -- while a dash must be inserted in the
interrogation style, when we invert the verb and the subject.

Though, I'm quite positive it can be fixed with some Emacs settings,
even if I did not find them yet ;-)

    plane)... but that one was solved by switching to Aspell.
