come again? hmm

Excuse me?

Hi, Shift-6 either side of words, so ^ hello ^ without the spaces becomes hello

Is that what you're having problems with?

lougle Thu 03-Jan-13 09:00:12

are you using a phone? my Samsung galaxy note puts a space after the first ^ so I end up with ^ italics^

I have to remember to delete the space if I want italics

On a Samsung galaxy note, using ppera.

The things are there when I type, but have disappeared when message becomes active, iyswim?

Don't think the number keys have dymbols on them.

Just have to swap to numeric keyboard - the symbols sure looks like the normal italicky chap.

It's your own fault for using opera wink try dolphin, it's much better.

IceTheChristmasKateMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 03-Jan-13 16:27:26

Wot lougle said, have you made sure there are no spaces?

hmm..

^ with spaces ^

withouy

see?

UPright!

I wanted slantology...

lougle Thu 03-Jan-13 18:47:04

That is slantology confused

Your withouy is slanty.

I wonder if opera is taking away the italics?

Kindles put spaces after punctuation, it's very annoying -- stupid kindle--
Instead of stupid Kindle
Took 3 tries yesterday.

Chaos, because I love you, I downloaded Opera on my Galaxy Note. It's Opera. It takes away all the italics on MN.

Download Dolphin Browser, and you'll see that they all show up.

Tee2072 Thu 03-Jan-13 19:17:04

Yes, darling, I must concur with the others. It is slanty.

When is your contract up? hmm

lougle Thu 03-Jan-13 20:46:44

tee, it isn't the phone, I promise. It's the browser. If chaos uses dolphin, she'll get the slanty back.

Tee2072 Thu 03-Jan-13 20:53:48

Well, there you go then, lougle. grin

Still...she needs a new phone. grin

Tee2072 Fri 04-Jan-13 07:20:12

You got a tablet? Hark at you. [wunk]

I loves my Kindle Fire, BTW. I am leaving my husband for it any day now...

Thanks lougle for mentionong Dolphin - have just installed it on my tablet, as Firefox Beta seems to keep crashing (no error message, just desktop reappears, guess I'm too short on space...)

It is truly fab, networkguy - it has lots of plug-ins too, so you can get some brilliant functionality from it.
