I had a hard time understanding this sentence from StackExchange co-founder Joel Spolsky:
I’m really just trying to set a minimum bar here so that everyone can understand what’s going on and can write code that has a hope of working with text in any language other than the subset of English that doesn’t include words with accents.
My main point of contention is the "other than" part. That part doesn't make sense to me. It would make sense if that part was replaced with "and not just".
The way it is worded makes it seem like he wants to exclude "the subset of English that doesn’t include words with accents" but I think he wants to say something like included but not limited to. Thoughts?
