A mystery.....2 of my letters are messed up- then OK in preview. What;s going on?

by Angeline Booher / May 6, 2004 7:45 AM PDT

I have a capital C, but not a lower case one. I have a lower case l, but the capital L comes out thusly-L

But all works fine in my email, so I reckon it;s not my keyboard.

I tested them in the Test forum- same thing.

Well, doggies! Looking at preview, I see I had a lower case c. Ooops- it's gone again! I'll try the capital L
Yep- it is OK in preview.

Re:Strange things happening here too....

Hi Angeline;

Along with the normal slow times. Sometimes when I click Post, it freezes. Click preview it unfreezes. Then luckly I find out it did post, otherwise I would have posted twice.

One thing I have noticed. When going thru the message threads it moves pretty good. Click back to "Speakeasy Forum" it dies.

Also had problems like you described. Thought it was my keyboard or me. Glad you brought it up.

Re:Change browser's character coding to

Hmmmmm. Now I'm not too computer savy James, and somehow I feel I'm going to get bit on this one, but just in case. Be more specific will you? I'll change anything to make this mess run smoother. Tell me how.

In either IE or Netscape click on

View and it will be Encoding, or Character Set or Character Coding and you can choose whatever character set you want to use. "Western" is the most accepted for US computers. Sometimes when visiting another webpage it will cause one's browser to change character set and then when you return to this site, since they haven't YET included a character statement in their template your browser likely will stay set at what the previous site's coding was.

Thanks James. I found it Ok and it works. Only problem is, it does'nt stay set. Mine was set on Western European (ISO) Changing it to Western European (Windows) loads up the window, but then it returns back to (ISO)?? Guess you have to do it each time.

Thanks again James. Its better than what I was doing.
