in thread Strange letters ...

I doubt this is what people are doing, but I achieved the above by manually changing the page's encoding (view -> encoding -> utf-8) and then submitting my node. Maybe some people's browsers are set to auto-detect encoding and are fouling up their submissions without them even knowing it?

    I doubt, because it's a very temporary phenomenon. This extra "┬" disappears perfectly after revisiting the node and may reappear later! But the change you made is permanently stored in the database!

    But I'm not sure if it's not just a Firefox thing, would be nice to know if it's observable with any other browser.

    My standard encoding is set to ISO 8859-1...

    Cheers Rolf
