Hi

If I write " < 8 t " (without the intervening spaces) inside a message it gets cut in the first "

Preview works fine.

I believe that the less than or greater than symbol messes things up, truncating anything that follows.


edit: I just tested it and anything between < and > disappears but the stuff after the > stays.

It's documented here.

Using the Lazarus browser plugin saves the day when one forgets about such things, or BGG does down, etc.

I understand the explanations you are giving and thank you very much.

But I'm a programmer myself and in my book this is still a bug.
As I said, it works fine in Preview which only makes this worse actually.

It is a bug. And the respondents were showing you where it was already documented as a known bug.

Yes, it is a bug, and is in our bug tracker. However, it is not a simple bug for us to fix, because it affects many systems.
