Weird Symbols

Author

 (Edited)

This is a problem I’ve just started to see today. Any symbols (commas, arrows, colons, etc.) appear as some sort of escape string. Here’s an example:

This only started appearing today.

JEDIT: Another example.

JEDIT 2: It appears that this only happens on my Android tablet. When I post from my iPhone, I do not see this. However, if I post on my Android tablet and edit the post on my iPhone, the problem persists.

RETURN OF THE JEDIT: Now this seems to happen on my iPhone too.

I don’t have an Android device recent enough to run 6, so I can’t test that, unfortunately.

Seeing them or experiencing them when you post? Your post looks fine to me.

Everybody can see them in affected members’ posts.
