Can we change this, please?

Whenever you enter the love sign you get <3 and it's annoying!

The love sign is Shift+Comma and 3, but it won't let me do it :(

The < is the HTML opener, I don't believe you can fix it.

I may be wrong about HTML tag opener. :/

Lol, this forum is based in HTML, meaning you can't fix it at all unless you change the main source code.


At least thats what I know.

He can also make those special faces like those you see on steam. Then when you type "<3" it shows an actual heart. That's the best way to fix it (I think).

Deputy
-> < because all posts are run through something similar to this: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.htmlentities.php 

Anything that's valid xml doesn't get converted though. (It instead gets fixed if it doesn't have an end tag)

Phil could fix this if he wanted to. It wouldn't be particularly hard to do, unless I'm forgetting something. I doubt he will because it isn't a particularly important bug.

In the meantime, you could always link to my picture. ( www.autohotkey.com is great for stuff like that)
