But through a long trial and error and elimination process I found the two major reasons why he couldn't post things:
- the HTML editor doesn't seem to handle quotation marks that have been copied and pasted from Microsoft Word. I believe it has something to do with Word's "Smart Quotes" scripting. So anything that he typed after a quotation mark (including the quotation mark itself) was deleted.
- He was taught to type on an old typwriter and therefore believed that there should be a "double-space" after each period. Well, the HTML editor doesn't like that either. So anything he tpyed after a double-space was deleted.
The next thing I will type now is a double space: if you can read this then my system has a problem which this system does not have and I'd like to know what the fix is
And here is a copy and pasted quote from MS Word: Here is a quote
I can see now (I've edited this post now twice). That both of these problems don't exist here on this system. But they certainly exist on mine. Any suggestions...
