    Hmm, if it do alt32 or alt255 into an empty message box then try to post it, it won't post. I get a red asterisk above the message editor indicating an empty post.

      This is on my win10 machine, the first was on win7.  This is an edit of my original post of just the alt32 and alt255.  That is why my text is not lined up on the left for the first word.

    No clue why you have problems, thought maybe is just worked on 7 but that is not the case.

    And right there was the alt09.  Below is a post of all three used, each on its own line.  Followed by a return.  And just added as an edit,( followed by a return ) after posting the alt usage post.

    Strange tho, on the edit I can see the indention of the alt09, but on the forum page I can't.  But the 2 spaces for alt32 and alt255 show up on both.

    Oh well, the only one that works for me is alt09, which is kinda nice because the resulting post is very minimal height wise. See my subsequent post.

    This is on a older vintage(same as my win7, but has been upgraded to 10.  Also this post is using the Latest Firefox as all other posts both win7 and 10 were using Edge.

     

    Hmmmmmmmmm alt32 and alt255 move the blinking cursor, alt09 does nothing.

    I thought the alt codes would be consistent worldwide, don't look that way though.

    Maybe it's the browsers again.

    OK, on this machine I get a red star inbetween the area of the original post and the reply area.  But none of the alts will post.
