    Re: Work around for special characters.

    I know a lot of us have been having issues with these special characters that pop up in our posts. I didn't clean this up but I will post this same post using this technique in the thread so you understand that it works.

    - First copy the entire message by using the Alt-C command.
    -Second cancel your post
    -Third paste in your message using the Alt-V command in the message square
    -Fourth post

      Thanks for coming up with the work around. The forum administrators should be fixing this though.

          Yup it works with the Command key. Also works by right clicking the mouse and using the copy and paste. Thanks.

                              Actually, 2 spaces after a period has become an anachronism. It's just not really done anymore.
