Odd text 1: etc
I noticed that DU subject lines will allow some text characters and not allow others. I'm curious about which ones you can see here. Here's the first batch

thorn
some Greek thingy Θ
some Russian thingy Җ
backwards question mark ؟
odd thingy ۞

in the subject line, all but the thorn were converted to the ascii code numbers by the DU board program from DCScripts.com

4. Technically that's "eth."
"Thorn" is like a p with an ascender as well.

5. Wish I could tell you why. Probably specific to DCScripts.com, though.
These all show properly in Safari 2.0.4.

If you want to have fun seeing how many scripts show in your browser, try http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/utf8.html#glass or http://www.macchiato.com/unicode/Unicode_transcriptions...

For some reason, neither Georgian nor Runic show up for me. Must revise plans. :(
