Yesterday the ** was showing up as an asterisk, today when I try to use the grin smilie the only way I can get it into the post is to go back and edit. Only here, the grin may be appearing: am I going crazy or is the board? If it's any help, when I tried to insert a grin the first time, it came up as (spaces inserted by me) : d (i.e. lowercase d) Help! Ah I see the right squiggly bracket is still comeing up as asterisks.
