I just reread the title of my last post. Before I fixed it, it read: "Le petit pécheur."
It now reads, as it should, "Le petit pêcheur."
The difference made by those little marks above the e: le petit pécheur = the little sinner; le petit pêcheur = the little fisherman.
... hah & sigh... as I said, I really need to get back on the path to fluency in French.
