On the last drawing Oui, you got it.

That how it supposed to do it in correct way.

Merci,
Marc

Noté: however I have to fix my monitor somehow I did not see the colour marking so therefore the remarked white should be on black supply.

Just a comment. Isn't the re-identified white wire supposed to be connected to the black supply?

YES. The black and white between the switch and the fixture must be reversed. You are not permitted to have two whites(even remarked) connected to the fixture. Switching them at the fixture is all that is requried. The switches will still be wired correctly.

Thanks joed. I know that rule about "two white wires (even remarked) on the fixture", but I missed it in the pic.

How 'bout this?
