    trying to type 2 capital letters in a thread reply, but only first letter remains cap

    https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...-Motor-Details

    When replying to Lee's post about not having a pop quiz about an article pertaining to fuel requirement, I wanted to type OH. (Cheeky response to the technical aspect of the article) As soon as I submit reply, the letter "H" changes to lower case, every time. I tried quite a few edits to change it back to upper case H with no luck. The first letter "O" remains a capital letter. Strange.

    I ended up deleting the thread as I believe it would have been more effective as the letters OH represent the Hydrogen particles uniting with Oxygen

    Yet, in this thread, the letters remain upper case.........OH

    I am going to return to the affecte thread and try it again.

    Cheers,
    William

    HO, HO, HO is reserved this time of year; restricted to a jolly old elf who is still wondering when BMW will build a sleigh. Try again after December 25th.

    Seriously, it is working fine here, using either caps lock or shift key. Maybe interference from a spell checker on your local machine?

    Oh

    OH, it is a first world issue, but not a problem. It worked in the message body, but not in the title on the other thread (and here, too.) Strange. Folks from OHio might not appreciate it. Just sayin'

    OH, OH, OH!

    HA!

    Oh no!

    Odd. Maybe it's a spell-checker issue? Here's what I typed (screen shot)

    Yes, there are some different "features" for the title bar. One that I've noticed in the past is the use of special characters in the title such as & or % or others. Normally without these special characters in the title, when you click on the small icon just to the left of an unread thread title in a forum area, it will take you to the last unread post based upon your last session. However, I've noticed that with a special character in the title, it takes you to the first post in the thread, not the first unread post. So another "annoyance" to deal with.

    HOW ABOUT THAt

    I found this older thread in the Similar Threads pane below:

    https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...apital-letters

    Not sure if this helps/hurts...but if you have a least one lower case letter in the title, it will allow the remainder to remain capitalized. See my title.
