If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?
This may be related:
I used to be able to enter the BGP symbol "£" and it would show up just as the pound sign. Lately, in GeekLists, it shows up with a symbol in front of it as well.
Perhaps the page encoding has changed and hard returns and pound signs aren't part of the symbol set?
Just a thought.
If that's so, I hope it can be fixed.
