Thank you Harland. Just about come to the same conclusion myself, though I don't recall problems in the past with that... I realised it was a font issue, but couldn't understand why. Maybe the software for the UBB has been updated..? Just done a quick internet search - looks like you are right as far as I can see as only certain codes are recognised. Thanks again.
Don't know why I'm bothering really - I'm sure people have better things to do. I certainly have right now and I'd better get going...
I was going to do a blog and link to it, but that's another pfaff!
cheers

Hmm, interesting. I wasn't expecting that last one to work until I saved it as 'all files' ext as you would for working with HTML...

On the first post on this thread I'm pretty sure I used the sites own edit function before posting ie. making some of the text bold...
I'm thinking of incompatibility issues of Unicode (this laptop Windows 10 and the UBB on this site is no longer supported..?) but as my 'tame expert' has long flown the nest I'm down to simple experimentation.
The day is not far away when I could get as far as Richmond and forget which way I'm going and start heading back to the Bay!

Apologies Harland. When I replied saying 'font' I mean't to convey the way the text is saved not the style as such but the code that is used to save the text.
