I'm not sure why it let me put "LOL" in the middle of text and not on a line by itself, or if it is the length of this post that is allowing it, or what, but it seems to work in this response to my own post.
This is either new behavior in the way the forum works, or it is something I haven't noticed in the past 4000+ posts I have made. I believe it is new behavior.
Thanks WM.. what's interesting about this is that when Donna quoted the same post of mine it showed up as I typed it. (btw the 'WM' was also decapitalized in your quote) So.... now I have to wonder if you've changed browsers, OSs, or some other such thing recently?
And here, trying your lines:
They are coming through fine, and as expected for me..curious...
