I'm not sure what the character is, but it makes squiggly lines up my screen:



If I mouse over the topic link the squiggles shrink:

It's some Thai character and it's known to do just that Sad.

When you say "it's known", I wonder if you can point us to some reference.  Ie, I'm curious if this is a smf thing, a browser thing, a unicode thing, a font thing, etc.

Well, but that's not doing the weird sideways text thingy that the OP shows in the screenshot.

Interesting, well, on my display it looks all horizontal like all the other text.   I guess I can do some reading on this character to follow up on my curiosity now that I know which one it is.  Cheers guys!

Okay, it seems that Thai has some combining diacritics which are allowed to stack and they go off to the left or to the right or straight up.  So it's not actually the text being sideways it's like a huge stack of accent marks over a letter that are stacked up over the line above.  I couldn't really get that particular font effect on my system (I did a bunch of the combining diacritics by entering them again and again in vim, but I don't see the stacking effect).  Anyway, that's not too surprising since, as far as I know, I don't have any Thai font support packages installed.  Anyway, here's a stack overflow with links to further resources on the phenomenon: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9310177/whats-the-character-encoding-used

This is what I see:




I also noticed this fact yesterday, but I thought it was only my problem... so is it related with the forum software not with our OS or browser?

Nope, it is not related to the forum software.  I'm not seeing the stacked diacritics in my browser and we're both using the same forum software.  What's going on is how your system deals with these stacked glyphs.  It may be related to whatever font you're using on your system or it may be related to your browser.  One thing we're sure of is that it doesn't have to do with SMF because you see it and I don't.

This is caused by not having fonts on persons system that can not read it and makes it look funny and sideways. Forum software can have the codecs installed to read it but most wont. People a few months back went crazy on btc-e spamming with the letters and throws chat off and bugs it out. Installing the fonts on your system can stop this but finding the Wright font that holds the carter sets in will take time to find the correct one.

Actually, it's already answered above and referred to in the answer to that stackexchange that I linked to.  The deal is that Thai has some diacritics which can be stacked indefinitely.  Presumably the fonts that show the stacking are doing the right thing.  If I write "looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool", we can's say that it's "unicode screwery" that your font didn't shorten that to "lol",  it's just that what I wrote was some screwery in itself.  Smiley

well yes i notice it too and i was thinking that was my own problem.

the problem that i see here is that by doing it you can made threads more striking, so in the end is like a good way to "spam".

im sure they can use another fonts Wink
