    Smileys

    Seems like a simple thing, but how would I get the word stop surronded in square brackets to appear in a post without getting the smiley? See post 468848. What I really wanted was the text not the smiley. I tried double quotes, and that did not work either.

    You can use the <!t>[t]<!/t> and <!t>[/t]<!/t> codes to do it - this will then look like:

    <!t>[stop]<!/t>

    So that they will not be converted to HTML (like %20 to a space)?

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> I used the HTML character entity code: &#nnn; where nnn is the ASCII value, in this case 037.

    Note: You have to insert those immediately before you click Post It; previewing them converts them into characters. Editing after the fact doesn't seem to work at all.

    Re: Smileys

    I've now added <!t>[%]<!/t> which generates a % so you can produce things like %06x

    Thanks, Claude

    My main interest is to deal with URLs which contain those characters (including %) which seem to give the Lounge software fits.

    There's no possibilitity of treating a URL "as is", without attempting to substitute characters therein, is there?

    Re: Smileys

    You could run an URL through this little Word macro:

    Sub PercentTag()
    On Error GoTo Err_Sub
    With Selection.Find
    .ClearFormatting
    .Replacement.ClearFormatting
    .Execute FindText:="%", ReplaceWith:="<!t>[%]<!/t>", Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    End With
    Exit Sub

    Err_Sub:
    If Not Err = 91 Then
    MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation
    End If
    End Sub

    If you like it, you can put it in your Normal.dot, and assign it to a toolbar button and/or keyboard shortcut for ease of use.

    Re: Smileys

    The URLs are the reason the code is in the lounge software <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>. It is to stop anyone putting up links which could exploit browser bugs and it is to stop phishing URLs.

    I'd suggest if you had a URL with such character in it, simply type it in so people can copy it, but it will not become a clickable URL.

    Sample: http://nowhere.com/this%22isit
    Cheers, Claude.

    <hr>You could run an URL through this little Word macro: <hr>...or if there's a perceived need, I could modify the "Woody URL" context menu extensions (<post#=438749>post 438749</post#>: Grabbing URLs for Lounge Posts - the easy way) to make the appropriate substitutions on the fly.

    That's a neat idea. Let's see how many Loungers holler.
