Small point of detail : la République Française, or la République française ?
I think this should be la République française (française not capitalised).
What is the consensus on this ? Does it matter ? Would either be ok ?
On Wikipedia, in this context , française generally seems to be in lower case, and I think the same on L'OBS web site.

Hi Paul and Tom,
Although the -f of française should not be capitalized it is often if used with the word, république; more for reasons of aesthetics on monuments, plaques, and official documents.
If you do a search for images of République Française, you will find plenty of examples backing this up.
