Weird screw up (extraneous "/url" showing).
And then there are the p-adic numbers[/url] -->p-adic numbers

(added comments)

This is weirder than I thought. The original text I used was:

And then there are the (i)p(/i)-adic numbers except that I used square brackets that I have replaced here by parens to illustrate what I used. Not only does it display wrongly, but on edit or peek it has a lot of inserted html. The dbcode for italics seems to confuse the parser.

You've found one of the holes in the parser - you can't safely embed dBCodes inside the URL dBCode at present. --Percy

Signature test
This is a quick test of signature.

Here is what was in the signature (in my profile). Use "peek" to see the original:

Jesus was a liberal hippie

And here it is again, but this time with additional coding so that you can see without having to use "peek":

[size=1][color=gold]Jesus was a liberal hippie[/color][/size]

Re: Signature test
The size looks the same to me.

Overall, the smaller size does improve your signature - it makes it easier to distinguish from the post.

Re: Signature test
That's hard to read. However, if I select the signature with my mouse then that highlights it and it becomes easier to read.

Either omit the color, or try a different color.

Re: IE8 test
Well that test worked.

I then turned on "compatibility view" and tried again.

It didn't work. Error was:
Error: Dispatch table lookup failure, control does not exist: Submit Reply

I think I have compatibility off again.

Test with javascript disabled
For this test, I have completely disabled javascript.

This will test whether posting works without javascript.

So far, so good; preview works.

If this shows up as a posted message, you will know that it works.
