When attempting to use the Proz.net in answering or posting questions, the program does not support the Danish language and "throws out" some of the text.

I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it hoping it will work better. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?

What is thrown out? Sep 18, 2003

Hello,

thanks for the bug report.

What exactly is being "thrown out"? Which pieces of information were affected?

Thanks
Hermann

TOPIC STARTER
letters missing Sep 18, 2003

I was writing a word that included the Danish "ø" in indkøringsfilter, and this showed up as indk?gsfilter, e.g. eliminating 3 letters. This is the second time the program acted up. I have seen the same problem with in other Danish answers to questions. The problem appears to be with the three Danish letters Æ (æ) Ø (ø) Å (å), where the program removes that letter plus the following two letters.

German umlauts and French diacritics, too Sep 18, 2003

Hi Hermann,

While we're at it: During the last few days, I've repeatedly noticed KudoZ answers where German umlauts and the "Es-Zet" - ß - (and in some cases even half of the word in which they occurred) disappeared or were replaced by question marks or square boxes. The same holds true for French diacritics.

This bug seems to occur exclusively in the new KudoZ design.

Please have a look at
http://www.proz.com/kudoz/524459
to see what I mean.

MTIA for further investigations,
Steffen

Swedish occasionally, too Sep 19, 2003

Yes, I have noticed the same with some, just some, of the Swedish messages on Kudoz, although it seemed to me that the fault was restricted to certain contributors, - strange?

Bug restricted to KudoZ.net users? Sep 19, 2003

Hi Nigel,

Your observation leads me to assume that only KudoZ.net users might be affected. Hermann, could you shed some light on this?

MTIA,
Steffen

And smileys come on where none is intended Sep 19, 2003

Suddenly an emoticon replaces some letters and this is exasperating, especially one is dead serious! Hope no smiley comes into this message. If they come, I have not invited them.
