At least that's what I think is happening. I see too many posts that are hard to read because they appear to be written in a word processor and then pasted into the forum's webform for posting. That's just my guess, but to see a really bad example of a very interesting and long post, take a look at "We finally made the purchase!"

I think that the new pw print is to small in general. Can it be made larger? Thanks.

I see no problem with that thread, other than the OP is rather ad nauseam and poorly formatted. What's the correlation between non-ASCII characters and a post that's just too long?

Nor do I when I look at it again. My browser must have figured it out in the meantime ;-). I really not an expert in this stuff (I just play one with my friends), but at the time I looked at the post with both Firefox and IE7 (on Windows XP), and this is what I saw (I emailed it to myself to save it--I just now made the image of the email).

Yeah, there was a problem with the forum's code a few days ago. Diacritical marks became messes of unintelligible characters. The diacritical marks in my sig were messed up, too.

If you are on a Mac, press Command (Apple key on older keyboards) and + to magnify and - to shrink things down. If you are on a PC, I believe you press Control and +/-. smile

Thanks - I'm using a new Dell Inspiron (windows Vista) laptop. Things keep popping up when all I want to do is type. Tis a mystery.
