Gotta say, Deb, that I'm loving the updates you've been doing on the forum recently!  It makes me feel like I'm part of a well-tuned machine.  Smiley

Thank you. There's always something to learn and I've found some great sources to learn from. Wink

I believe the font-sizer has been returned. See?

We've gone to a more stringent encoding - so of you see some odd looking characters - like a diamond with a question mark inside - let me know where it is and what it should be and I'll take care of it.

I did find a few, all the copyright symbols are now diamond question marks. It doesn't seem to like the accents in words like fiancee, or touche.

It flagged the apostrophe in the title of A Mother's Day Visit for some strange reason.

The only others I have seen have been on empty spaces at the end of paragraphs, not that common.

I hope you don't have to edit each post, that would take forever! Shocked Grin

What's happening is two things, actually. When the allowed character set became stricter, a lot of Window's specific punctuation became non-compliant. But to keep from having everyone replace every single piece of punctuation, I added a punctuation converter in the part that turns all the stuff like font-size changes into html for the most common ones. (double and single quotes, ellipsis, em and en dashes.) Looks like I have to add one for copyright as well. Not a problem.

Or maybe I'll dump the whole thing and go back to the looser character set.

Update: just rolled back to the looser charset.

AND you can see member's avatars on the Members page. (Note - there does seem to be a minor glitch with resizing when viewed with IE9. I'll check on what the mod writer says about it - there may already be a fix.

We have more smilies. And the presentation is a little clearer - everything was bunched together and I finally got around to putting them all in a proper table. Smiley
