The title basically says it...while it's nice to have a button in the smiley column instead of having to type Alt + 0165 for a yen sign, why not insert the Unicode character instead of a graphic? The nuyen.gif looks really fuzzy on larger monitors, and when not logged in the URL breaks the text flow (unlike smilies, currency symbols tend to be somewhere in the middle of the text).

Get a mac. It's the easy way.

While Apple sure knows how to build displays, I doubt they know some magic way to make a zoomed bitmap look crisp, or make a pseudo-URL in the middle of a sentence more aesthetic wink.gif

My current solution by the way is to simply use a Privoxy rule for some text replacement magic.

Probably because there's a system in place with the forums for custom smilies but not for custom characters unless you use the ALT+0165.

The easy way to waste money in a completely unrelated way to the topic? Yeah, that would be right, I guess. wink.gif


For the record, I always use the myself, because of the reasons stated. The nuyen.gif just kinda looks out of place in the text.

But as CanRay said, the forum can only display images not characters that way. Though I assume there might be a profanity filter, which could be used for such text replacements.

I admit that I don't know much about BB software, but my guess would be that the smiley button in the posting editor is a simple bit of JS which says "onClick, insert $STRING into the text field at current cursor position". Or am I completely off the track there?

Well, that and being able to type as Option-y rather than as ALT+assorted.
