  1. Could we get this coding error cleaned? up. This HTML doggerel
    is supposed to be an apostrophe. This has been going on for some time.

    On the front page comments it displays fine but on the forum comments side it displays as captaincranky posted.

    Using either Firefox or IE.

    Thanks for the note, I have forwarded this to our devs. I swear we've fixed this twice already and it comes back on again somehow.

    Yeah well, I went and googled this:
    because I felt stupid for not knowing what it meant..... :eek:

    This was supposedly fixed with our forum move. *Crosses fingers*

    Not so fast Julio :eek:

    Going to the HP price fixing story from the forums I get
    Code:
    HP's Seoul office was raided by South Korea's Fair Trade Commission (FTC) last Friday
    I used the code box, because when I copy pasted it into a quote box, it pasted with the correct apostrophes.

    Opera 11.62, OS X 10.7.3

    I thought you spelled "apostrophe" with an "F" instead of a "T". I should probably clean off the screen. It's amazing the big difference a little booger can make......:eek:

    Well Julio, the original error was fixed! That was something like "rsquot?"

    CC - my first attempt at spelling it was wrong. When it got underlined with the red line, I right clicked and accepted the correction that looked the best.
