    Whenever I try adding emoticons or boldface/italics etc. to a post it places them at the end, not where the cursor is or around a highlighted word (in the case of text modifiers). This happens in Safari (current version) but not Firefox (v1.0 G4-enhanced version). Why is that?

    Make sure to explain it in a patronizing tone with plenty of rolling eyes. :)

    I don't know the reasons why, but Safari doesn't seem to support the WYSIWYG editor in vB fully/correctly. Something Apple needs to sort out I think.

    Ok, so I'm not crazy then. Good.

    I usually do my posting at work on a Wintel w/IE, so I didn't notice it for the longest time.

    Internet Explorer (on Windows, at least, don't know about Mac) and Firefox (and Camino) support it. Safari and Opera doesn't.

    Safari doesn't support WYSIWYG in general. And Jelsot (owns vbulletin) friggen HATES this, you have no idea how many threads i have seen about safari issues with the WYSIWYG and AJAX system.

    It's ridiculous

    Safari does have spell check though! Do any other browsers have spell checking, I haven't been able to find one?
