Re: Coded Graphics Seem Broken

It's fixed in ios 7 but we still need a patch for OX 10.

»www.fileformat.info/info/unicode···list.htm is the dingbat block
although some don't show in my browser.

edit: since the dingbat block is (and I'm extremely reluctant to say this) sort of useful I'll whitelist that range the next code push your musical notes will appear.

If I sound cautious it is because even apart from rendering bugs crashing browsers - which probably won't happen again - I'm betting there are other nasties lurking in just opening the door to the full gamut of utf8 html entities, especially when used in an ISO-8859 database and site. XSS exploits spring to mind: »www.owasp.org/index.php/XSS_Filt···at_Sheet

Thanks - I appreciate that.

So when did news surface of this 'Arabic character' browser crashing thing ? (or whatever you first called it)

And was it actually affecting DSLR, or were you just being careful when you disabled the code block ?

A week ago I think? maybe two.

I checked the linked page »www.fileformat.info/info/unicode···list.htm just now, and in FireFox 14, I can see them all the way down to 'EAST SYRIAC CROSS', which is just after the musical notes, about half way down the page.

BTW, THEY have different code numbers than you do.

Is this something where you have to manually map the desired characters to a table at your end ?

On chrome there are gaps.
Anyway the code numbers are right, ignore the U+ code
drill in for example »www.fileformat.info/info/unicode···ndex.htm
♫ or ♫
shows as a double note on my browser.

If it doesn't on firefox then I think nobody should be using them (which was sort of my original point) but it probably does.

I'm happy to rename the Anime and Sci-Fi forum to "Geek Media" or "Anime, Sci-Fi and TV", but it should remain on topic - not become yet another general chat forum.

Perhaps that is the more important thing to raise in Feedback?

(I want the forum in question to stay on topic, but this "media creep" has been going on for quite some time now--due to a small number of members here feeling self-entitled and a mod who does nothing about it.)

It was confusing, yes, try it now. It was a regression that I didn't spot when I changed the quick reply to not lose the ability to see the post you're replying to, when you switched over to full reply.

Tried it. Still same thing--not fixed yet. Thanks anyway for checking it out.

Yes, your next code push indeed made them appear.

Actually, that is a 'tied' pair of 8th notes.

The details page on that site also has several other terms which describe them.

BTW, my bad on the code numbers - I had missed that they are expressed in Hex in their table, but both ways on their details pages.

I am seeing the characters now while still testing FireFox today, but they looked the same in IE8 in the recent past.

Site seems to have hit the nitro a couple weeks ago. Everything is crazy fast. Whatever happened, I noticed, and like it.

thanks that made my day, as a hobby I've been gradually identifying and fixing slower URLs. Of course it could just be someone in a NOC somewhere improved an interconnect, but I'm trying to have all pages construct in less than 200ms (that's with no caching, if I can cache a page, it could be 10ms).

Also about two weeks ago I changed the TCP stack to be more aggressive than the default. This means small requests like 20k or less can arrive all in a bunch of packets, even before you ack the first packet.

I don't want them all jumbled under 1 system message, how it is now I click the system message and I have like 3 & 4 sub messages telling me I have a reply to my message.

the messages accumulate to the unread one if you are offline
they are ordered according to time.
you still get the same info just in one or two clicks not multiple.

IE10 - COMPATIBILITY VIEW
Upon my first visit of the day to the forums I had to enable "Compatibility View" for the first time in years! Once enabled it fixed the out of place text/fields. Did something change?

Oh Ok then
sigh, IE10 still doesn't do things right (hidden until narrow screen triangles). I really had hopes it would - but it doesn't. So I'll disable that again.

What is it that's not playing right with IE10?
Is it just IE10 or are other IE versions affected also?
Maybe I missed something earlier in the thread...

just turn off compatibility mode it'll look right now.

It is some CSS that works ok for WebKit but IE10 can't do it right.

I'll give it a bit as I'm not seeing the change appear yet on my end with it turned off.

then it isn't what I thought,
and I don't know what changed to make IE10 spit the dummy. (the style sheet has not changed since last week).

Thanks anyways. I'll just enable compatibility mode then as it fixes whatever is causing the broken lines and fields in the forums.

Actually you can help,
open F12 developer tools then open console, then make it big enough then hit refresh on the page without compatibility mode on, and if you can screen shot whats in the console?

then I can compare that it to whats in the console in virtualbox and see whether you're getting an additional error line that would explain the appearance of the option to switch to compatibility view.

Take a look at this and see if it helps:

Ok that helped and it was the very first thing I had suspected (triangles for mobile mode) I just didn't back the change out properly.
