Hi,

it is strange, I see only the first part of my post (up to that Chinese), though in "Editing-view" everything is OK ?! Is this due to "input style=" behind the Chinese which is not to be seen either?

I'll put the rest here, maybe it'll work:

I hope it will be the same when you look at it, on my computer I see a Chinese character after the "Blond" for what should probably have been é. At first I thought maybe it's the wrong encoding (UTF-8, I didn't change this before!) but with ISO8859-1 it's none the better:

Contact person: Michel Lambrechts
Company: Blond颾

Is this due to Mozilla or what could be done about it?

Charlotte

So here's the original beginning:

I just looked at one of the job-postings (http://www.proz.com/job/117914) and was astonished to find a strange character there:

é became Chinese Jul 18, 2006

Hello Charlotte,

I've done what I can by correcting the name back to Blondé in the Blueboard
(it still seems to appear with the Chinese character instead of é in past job postings, but I'm guessing that the é should be there in future postings.

The Chinese character wasn't because of Mozilla (it was the same in IE), it's from when the site was converted to unicode and the system "guessed wrong" which character needed to be displayed.

If there are any more/other problems with it, please leave a reply here or you could send a support request.

Everything's fine now :-) Jul 18, 2006

Hello Giuli,

thanks a lot for your help! I just had a look at that job-posting and the BB and everything is OK now, without any Chinese or other things which should not be there (nothing against Chinese!).

It's nice to hear this, normally poor Mozilla is blamed even if it is completely innocent
