Re: Unicode Test
I mostly use Chrome but saw your post and tried it in IE - I see the problem now.

No FF on the machine I'm using now - can someone take a look using FF?

Netscape and Safari are fine.

Re: Unicode Test
Posting the same text, but from IE:

I tested both the Japanese and British children on the same tasks, showing them very accurate, detailed photographs of selected natural and man-made objects and then asking them questions about the causal origins of the various natural objects at both the scientific level (e.g. how did this particular dog become a dog?) and at the metaphysical level (e.g. how did the first ever dog come into being?). With the Japanese children, it was important to establish whether they even distinguished the two levels of explanation because, as a culture, Japan discourages speculation into the metaphysical, simply because it’s something we can never know, so we shouldn’t attempt it. But the Japanese children did speculate, quite willingly, and in the same way as British children. On forced choice questions, consisting of three possible explanations of primary origin, they would predominantly go for the word "God," instead of either an agnostic response (e.g., "nobody knows") or an incorrect response (e.g., "by people"). This is absolutely extraordinary when you think that Japanese religion — Shinto — doesn’t include creationas an aspect of God’s activity at all. So where do these children get the idea that creation is in God’s hands? It’s an example of a natural inference that they form on the basis of their own experience. My Japanese research assistants kept telling me, "We Japanese don’t think about God as creator — it’s just not part of Japanese philosophy." So it was wonderful when these children said, "Kamisama! God! God made it!" That was probably the most significant finding.

Preview is screwed up with a series of three funny characters where the double and single quotes should be.

Posting now...

Editing in Chrome, where the text looks fine. So I'm still unable to reproduce the way that a message was posted with Unicode characters that display in Chrome as empty squares.

Edited by Percy, : No reason given.

Re: Unicode Test
I use Firefox. The original posted by slevesque had character problems. None of yours, that you posted here, has had a character problem.

I do not see any issues here.

Okay, thanks! As happens so often, IE is the weirdo.

Testing double quotes
Original subtitle - Testing double quotes "in the subtitle"

There seemed to be a problem with the subtitle getting truncated at the first double quote mark, if the message is edited.

OK - Look fine via "peek". Time to post.

Added by edit: Everything was correct when first posted, but now with this edit, the subtitle has lost "in the subtitle".
