Some of my posts are looking strange.  Iím wondering if this is happening to anyone else? It corrects itself if I hit EDIT and Submit Modified Post (I donít actually change anything).

It’s strange. It’s happened twice today. I wonder if it’s just something I see.

Lorac is the text (not the size) messed up as well?

If you using IE 11 Lorac you can change the coding by unhiding the toolbar by Alt. You can find it in Edge I believe the same way. The view command I believe is universal for the encoding part in most browsers I believe.

The problem is the the forum template is using iso-8859-1 instead of utf-8 and your apostrophe isn't registering properly  for your systems character set.

’ is html code for an apostrophe and your browser should be showing it as such BUT there are various issues with international character sets and an apostrophes not necessarily being the same as a single quote.

So why does it sometimes work ... you are probably going to ask. Well short answer is I dunno ... BUT odds are good the software here is using a recursive algorithm and is just tiring out {aka erroring out or timing out} during processing}.

You may want to check your browsers  character encoding and or force it to utf-8 :yes:

FYI I see it as a glitch but my apostrophe's appear to work ' <= like that :yes:

I mostly use my iPad when posting here and recently did an update, maybe that&rsquo;s the problem.
