I didn't find anything specific about Franch unfortunately, believe
me I searched for this, and I've not yet verified it the holes'
positions match ISO 838 or 888 or not (sorry)

The punishment's code was written after taking measures with a ruler
on a real paper sheet. The lines format on such sheets seem to have
been "invented" by http://www.cahiers-oxford.com/LaMarque.asp but
nowhere was I able to find any specification. It is really the most
used format in French schools, although some related formats have
the lines spaced or colored differently. The other most used format
in France as far as page design is concerned, is with 5mm X 5mm
squares, usually with blue/violet lines in a single width, compared
to the two widths / two_or_three colors used in the punishment generator.

bye, and sorry for the late answer.
