Hello All!

For some reason, unknown to me, upon posting answers to certain questions in the Eng>Spa pair, all the Spanish characters [´¡ ¿ ñ] become converted into what appear to be "oriental" characters [forgive my ignorance but I wouldn't know whether it was Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or what!:-)].

In the recent past, this had only happened a couple of times but today, it's already happened twice in a short space of time. I wonder if it might not also be happening in other language pairs or if it's only in the case of Spanish?

Today I discovered that a temporary solution is to repeat one's answer --- but eliminating all Spanish characters....though it is a bit irritating to have to repeat an answer, particularly when a lengthy explanation is part of that answer.

Hopefully, Henry can solve this wee irksome glitch:-)

Regards.
Terry
