Has anybody else noticed getting these strange characters like in the below post? I have been getting them occasionally.

I saw that page toolman but the symbols I get does not have the TM included. It must be some kind of encoding going on with Chrome. I will check it out. It looks like I would need an extension. I only get these characters sometimes. So far as of today I get nothing.

Looks like some unicode characters?

That's what I'm getting. It hasn't happened in the last couple of days. It usually happened when I quoted something and then deleted a few words from the quote.

I'm able to duplicate it by doing a copy and paste from a previous post in the thread then pressing enter.

In the link I posted in section 157 it says "Whats the Problem" and the last link in that 1st paragraph take you to a break down of all of the characters / symbols but doesn't really explain anything that makes senses as to what they're about.

 

I don't know. :scratchhead:

 

It was the closet thing I was able to find to the characters you had posted and figured it might be of some help.

I do not quite understand, but it looks like the euro :) * joke * in fact reminds something of unicode.
