  1. That problem with bad character encoding on article pages but not on the main page continues to show up. The dash on this page is a case in point, and I’m seeing it in other articles as well.

    No — that’s my fault. It’s a cut and paste thing, though the dash should really have been caught. I’ll have another look at the macro that does the posting.

  3. The links for the new test posts don’t work, fwiw.
