question marks

on Nov 19, 2008 @ 12:30 pm

I've been noticing that whenever a user issues 2 spaces after a sentence punctuation a symbol appears in the form of a question mark encased in a diamond. I write my chickchat entries directly in the text box provided rather than copying from an external editor and pasting in the chickchat text box.
Here is an example w/ 2 spaces. Two spaces.
Now for sheer entertainment, here is an example w/ 1 space. Once space.
I guess the issue isn't really a bid deal, just slightly annoying.

Ok, so that original post did not do it. Perhaps the question marks only appear in replies to original posts. Let's try this again ...

Ok, now I managed to replicate the problem. Those that write using 2 spaces after sentence punctuation get these question mark diamond symbols (which is how I was taught to type). Those that issue just a single space do not get the symbol. Interesting.

Thanks Spotty! We've been noticing it too and are working to correct it.
