Thanks - there definitely used to be a problem with polls. I have fixed the vast majority of the titles but the options will have to stay as they are for the time being. The big plus is that there shouldn't be any more problems with the options!
here's another. my initial post on this thread now reads like even more gibberish than when i wrote it. if it remains like this, i am likely to get posted onto a long language course next as they will assume i like foreign languages
You are right, following the conversion quite a lot of symbols have become corrupt. It has always been my intention to do a find and replace but this is a massive task and will need to be done in bits ....... when I can find the time and enthusiasm!
The main thing is that from now on new posts & threads will be fine ....
