Right, I'm going to try to bugger this up.

<i onmouseover="javascript:window.alert('Haha!')">JavaScript blocked?</i><br/>

<a href="#" onclick="javascript:window.alert('hoho!')">an innocent link</a><br/>

<div style="text-decoration:blink; background-color:blue>No closing tag!

iknowrite?

I thought I might be able to convince the "preview' screen to run arbitrary code, but I tried about 15 different languages, and *pfft*, nothing.

So disenchanted. How am I supposed to compromise the system to change the front page to a PARIS & LOHAN tribute now?

Well, I don't seem to be able to post any HTML tags at all

Is that good or bad?

Anchor (with nothing more than HREF)

Bold, Itallics, Underline and EMphasis are all that work.

Mr Cowherd, I have upgraded your account. Try again.

It depends. Have you been added to the list of Supertards? I believe that is needed before <b>the</b> tags work. See what I mean...

Well I would assume that they don't let you just put anything in your comment, and then paste it into the middle of the actual page HTML. Who do you think they are; Microsoft?

It's interesting the way that the working tabs are interpreted (I guess when the post is made?), but tags in non-upgraded accounts are left in as text.

Is the intention that eventually tags will be given to all the unwashed and that everyone will be equal again, or will some always be more equal that others?

much obliged sir

Well I can't seem to break it , no class, no id, no style, no images, no links, no events, no XML processing instructions, I can't even enter an invalid URL in the a href... little Bobby Tables will have to get his kicks elsewhere.

Plus you've got Unicode working, which is more than Slashdot has managed in 20-odd years :-)

Thumbs up from me.

Quick test of accented letters...

(... 'cos I'm half Italian.) And some other random symbols I can get from my keyboard...

Giovanni disse:

«Non e possibile! Funziona!»

– Davvero? I caratteri Unicode si vedono tutti?

– Si!

All the Español I know:

¡Ole!

¿Que?

"Well," said the DFS salesman, shortly before he was arrested after producing his concealed pun, "sofa, so good."

Bugger me, it works!

Does anyone see weird 'filler' symbols instead? It'd be interesting to see how far Unicode has spread.

(I.e. if you see multiple 'empty square' symbols, please reply with your platform, browser, etc.)

FYI: I posted on a MacBook Pro running Safari 5.1.2 on OS X 10.7.2.

I suspect the "filled Apple" symbol (in the row above "Giovanni disse") may not appear correctly on other platforms.

All the symbols seem to show here, except the one after: ÂÊÁËÈØ

I assume that is the Apple one? Obviously my computer does not show it to save me from being sued by the evil Apple lawyers :) But given that I am using IE8 (Spanish) on XP(Spanish), funny letters should show up! I already tried a few of these in the title for a new forum/topic and they worked there too.

You need a little more Spanish. Try after me:

¿Hay un bar cerca? (Eye un bar ther-ca) ≡ Is there a bar nearby?

The answer will always be "si" and some pointing. A friend told me that he thought the sign "Salida" in the underground meant bar, because if you follow the signs, they always lead to one :)

Then once inside:

Una cerveza por favor (una ther-betha por fabor) ≡ a beer please.

But no more lolcat-speak, mmk?

xkcd

I used to think that Dilbert was the best, but I'm afraid that I have to give that honor to xkcd now.

Some of my favorites are:

"Tech Support Cheat Sheet"

"Understanding flow charts"

Old but still good; "Steal This Comic"
