While typing in the reply box, I noticed that certain letters were being substituted with special characters: the lowercase 'a' becomes the greek letter alpha, lowercase 'th' becomes theta and uppercase 'I' becomes the Roman numeral one.
When posting the reply, these characters get replaced by what I assume is the ASCII code:


ɪ confess this makes up for θe lame apocalypse.


I am using the latest Google Chrome browser on Ubuntu 12.10, if that helps. The problem seems limited to the reply boxes in the Games Forum.

Ive actually seen that happen in the general ASoIaF forum too. Seems like some sort of bizarre glitch. Happens a lot when someone is quoting, i noticed.
