  • Text sometimes displays as boxes?

    This is a strange issue but a few members have occasionally mentioned a problem in my 5.4.1 forum where text displays as boxes instead of the actual text. Apostrophes in particular seem to occasionally cause this problem.

    The text says: Zach Brown: We’ll “have it out” for Terrelle Pryor at joint practices

    How it displayed on his system is shown below. Note that the boxes are also appearing in the body of the post.
