[02:03:47] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: I did some quick checks on dev and was able to post several comments with a variety of direct-entered characters in them!
[02:04:34] <Bytram> OTOH, I can't seem to remember, did we allow left-to-right-mark and right-to-left-mark characters before? They seem to be allowed as directly entered characters.
[02:05:23] <Bytram> ISTR seeing them in there, and am of two minds as to whether or not we want to support them -- I'm favoring leaving them in as they potentially have value if we go fully internationalized.
[02:32:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, we left em active on purpose
[02:33:57] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: and the thinking was?
[02:34:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> "wtf, why not"
[02:34:27] * Bytram notices that his HexChat doesn't flash when we gets 'talked to'
[02:34:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> links get marked if they got unicode supposedly, though i don't think it's working just now. may fix that tomorrow or may go to a parade.
[02:35:20] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: yeah, I recall there was concern about text going out of the proscrived area, but the HTML should be able to be set up to truncate anything that tries to exceed the allocated 'box'
[02:35:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> believe it already is
[02:35:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> if not it's an easy fix
[02:36:24] <Bytram> oh, you mean that, if I construct a URI that has UTF-8 chars beyond ascii in it, that it gets flagged as being UTF-8 or somesuch?
[02:36:41] <Bytram> I remember seeing that done before, but don't recall the exact verbiage.
[02:37:04] <Bytram> btw, I can't seem to get any stories to post on the staff SN server...
[02:37:15] <Bytram> I sent an email to PJ and NC, but no reply, yet.
[02:37:55] <Bytram> and with that, I just worked 6 days straight and needs some zzzzzzzz's
[02:38:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, yeah that's how it should be working on prod but it's not on dev i don't believe.
[02:38:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep, nite. bout to do the same.
[02:38:29] <Bytram> thanks bunches for your UTF-8 work! It seems vastly improved, but I still got bunches of stuff to check afore I give it an okay.
[02:39:55] <Bytram> Oh, was that where I saw the UTF_8 callout? I remember seeing an HTML Link followed by the domain name in square brackets as well as by some flag text (also in square brackets) noting it contained Unicode chars.
[02:40:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep, domain name appears broken as well
[02:40:28] <Bytram> I hope to pop in a coupla times tomorrow as I has the day off, but lotsa things to catch up on, too.
[02:40:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> might be my settings though
[02:40:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep
[02:41:26] * Bytram really needs a test document identifying the expected functionality, the testing factors to consider, and then permute these into the tests that validate it.
[02:41:35] <Bytram> ain't happenin tonite, tho.
[02:41:49] <Bytram> sleep well, my friend!
[02:42:03] * Bytram heads to bed
