I'm posting this as a test for the apostrophe. I turned off Smart Punctuation.

Sorry Timbuck, it cut the message out at the GBP symbol. I guess you can use GBP instead of the symbol. :(

From what I've seen, it doesn't matter what you type. The "text dropping" is random. # @ % ^ & * ( )

It happened to me that the post and title were truncated.
Then after I figured that it might be characters with umlauts that caused this
I replaced the 'u umlaut' by 'ue'...
But we shouldn't have to restrict ourselves to ASCII-128. The forum should accept at the very least ASCII-256.
In some forums I saw people typing in Russian words.
