    One can confuse, since Baden (ca 20 km from Vienn)
    and Baden-Baden in Germany are both “casino-towns”.
    Maybe “x% german, and y% austrian”?
    O’k, I don’t want to be too critical. I just mean, they are
    two different countries

    Excellent job (I mean %), but what means “German
    along with Austrian”. Is Adolf alive again?
