A number of calls get the first 3 characters replaced by one other when in edit mode in Firefox 3. Works fine in IE7

For example:

%CALENDAR{... becomes ╩LENDAR{...

%DATABASE_SQL{... becomes ┌TABASE_SQL{...

When you click on save, those calls obviously do not work anymore.

Correction. It works fine on my son's Firefox 3.0, but not my Firefox 3.01. Not sure if it's the version or something tweak I've done on my computer.

It has something to do with (url) encodings (which are done by a percent sign plus a two-digit hexadecimal number). Please compare all charset and/or encoding settings between your computers.

My apologies. I had to uninstall Firefox, get rid of all my old settings, and then reinstall, and it works now.
