Strange symbols appearing in postings?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has anyone else experienced this problem, namely how this symbol - †- or a variation thereof appears in place of ' or " in postings?

    Say again, over? :D

    I've been having that for a few days. Probably connected to the site upgrades that the COs are doing. Happens most commonly when someone has quoted someone else I find.
     
  3. Doesn't seem to happen now, but my signature's been terminally affected. All change...
     

  4. it's long been a problem when you create a poll. you put apostrophes in the poll options, you end up with all sorts of weird characters instead.

    Guys,
    This is another issue that appears to have come about as a result of our upgrades to the servers and/or software. Its on the to do list so hopefully should be fixed at some point in the not too distant future!

    Hopefully now fixed but I'd be grateful for any sightings of other problems .....
