I've discovered that even something as simple as a pound sign can (apparently) cause it. Once removed, the post will ....errr...... post as normal. I have a theory that it's possible that any random alteration might do the trick: yesterday said pound sign was one of a number of possible offenders in the post - but I hit it at first attempt. Chance good luck or something else?

Thanks!

I was alone in the office yesterday and was able to dictate into my iPhone without anyone thinking I'm nuts. Can't do that today. Big Grin

Typing however always fits in in an office environment. Very Happy

Chance I suspect, but it's testable. Deliberately make a post with 2 forbidden characters, and then edit it to remove only one and see what happens.

(I've had posts where I've edited and edited and still not managed to catch the offending symbol. Very Happy

I've established the UK pound symbol as one. I'll try the dollar $
Edit - no problem there.

I think only standard ASCII characters are accepted.
Note that $ is a standard ASCII character (036). And that £ is not.

Laughing Still a bit random though...that post I made yesterday definitely had nothing more unnacceptable than a ' in it, and even when I deleted the ' it still wouldn't accept it.

There must be other factors at work. Very Happy

Probably because your signature contains those bad characters discussed above. Even though your not changing it, the values are on the page and part of what is submitted when you press OK.

Try it again, but this time change your signature, and replace Ardinéa with Ardinéa. I bet that works.

Test. I've been unable to post from my home computer for the last two days.

Edit. The Windows update may have fixed it.

Update: If you get this error on a newly typed post, that doesn't contain anything copied and pasted, and has no special characters, copy your post, return to the thread and quote the previous reply, then replace the quoted reply with your copied post.

And if you don't have any diacritics and it still rejects you, click "reply to post" instead of using the quick reply box.

That's a good reminder. I've had to resort to that a time or two to get my post through the Watch's spam protection.
