[SOLVED] Changes to the Comments Form

Atahualpa 371 Wordpress 321

I'm trying to change the title of the Comments Form "Leave a Reply" and the content of the Submit button "Post Commment"

There are no options for these in Style & configure COMMENTS and Style Forms. How can it be done ?

URL of my work-in-progress blog: http://julesgobeil.com/wpfr/

Thanks for your help
Jules

Yes I did a forum search. All solutions involve making changes to comments.php and I hate to go that route because these changes are lost when upgrading to a new version.

I'm trying to add the required tags in Add HTML/CSS Inserts but my knowledge of CSS is quite limited

Adding this doesn't work:
Code:
h3.reply, h3#reply-title {
    value: "Ajouter un commentaire";
    }
Is there a better way ?

There is an error in comments.php which causes a PO file created from it to be incomplete skipping the translation for 'Leave A Reply'. The attached file should fix the error, but you will have to create the PO file from it to use it.

oops, I accidentally uploaded the uncorrected version (sigh) here is the corrected version
comments.zip

I removed the 'bad' version from the previous post.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated. It forced me to get a better understanding of this PO/MO translation thing. Unfortunately, it is not available yet for 3.7.1. No big deal, I still have a lot of work to do on this blog. I'll work on the contents for a while instead of the container. Hopefully the translation will be available by then.

Regards
Jules
