Before the end of 2017 the board will be down for a brief period of time for an upgrade.
Past experience says less than 30 minutes but I can't predict the future.
Also, there is a high probability that the forum will move to a different host, but that will not happen in 2017.
Thanks,
Doug

Prevent Control Characters from Displaying

Postby Roxie2401 » Tue Sep 27, 2016 7:21 pm

Occasionally on a download, I see what I think are either control characters or format characters instead of the correct character. This usually happens in the Synopsis, but occasionally in the Title. I'll see "&mdash" instead of the actual dash, or "&amp" and not an apostrophe or the "&". The rest of the text is fine.

Is there a setting or a font change that would help this? Or do I simply have to manually edit the download?

Strange, but I don't see the same issue with CATVids Synopsis; only BookCAT.

Any one else seeing the same issue? Or is it just me and my configuration?

Thanks

The new version of Internet.dll, v251, resolved this issue. The "&emdash, &quote,&ampm etc. all download correctly.

Thanks very much, Fredrik!
