    DRAM :D

    FWIW, I just went and edited your post to see if it's a universal or thread issue, it changed just fine.

    I have no idea what's going on there. :confused:

    Maybe Mods are given extra powers to post in all caps.

    TESTING D = DRAM as someone who's not a mod. "Preview post" tells me it will work, but will it?

    Ohhhh, but if you post only in caps, it'll convert it. I typed this entire message in caps, but preview post tells me i'm going to be out of luck.

    That would cut down on all the shouting

    Note, I type the first line in ALL caps to shout the message and then edite it to add this note

    You're right, never even noticed that effect. This is in all caps!

    I guess that explains the problem with the grin smiley not working if there's no other text as the capital D gets converted to a small d.

    So that is by design Mike? :)

    Bad design. If I want caps, I type CAPS, I don't need "smart" software making decisions for me. :rolleyes:

    Yup, it's by design. I'm pretty sure it was designed with John in mind.

    Can you add something to convert posts from new members that have to play with the font settings into normal text?

    LOL -- the problem is that it's a little subjective. Maybe just limit the size?
