Question: Am I missing knowledge of a commonly used abbreviation on this group? I keep seeing “ ” appearing and haven’t got a clue what it means! I may be being dumb, but please enlighten me!
Answer 1: It’s HTML for the space character (well, that’s the simple explanation). Try displaying messages in HTML (if using Outlook). I think the rules for the group say no HTML messages though – so you shouldn’t really get them in the first place, although the original message is formatted using HTML.
Answer 2: I believe the problem is due to Hotmail sending only in HTML since the upgrade (a *real* pain). A list I am on has the ability to filter HTML, and this causes the Hotmail members posts to appear blank?!
