Another thing I would say is, AFAIR, the only characters replaced by this "Replacement Character" placeholder are:

Nul
' <apostrophe>
" <double quote>

Does anyone else recall seeing any others?

Hi Dennis,

I think we are done with this odd encoding issue for now.

We need to stick with the plan of comparing old to new, with links for each; but we are moving off that target so let's call this task done.

Thanks for your help.

If anyone has links to posts in the new forums which have errors which are not in the old forums, please post both links and let me know what you found comparing old and new. Let's stick to my instruction of testing "bottom up" which means comparing the old with the new, posting the two links to each one (old and new) with details of what is different.

Continue here: Please Help Integrity Test New Discourse Forums V2

Otherwise, let's move on to other tasks.

Thanks so much for your help again!

I am going close this sidebar issues thread on encoding because people are not providing links to old versus new, but are posting information with no links to compare, so please forgive me for pointing this out, but if people are going to not follow our testing instructions and are going to post without posting links to old v. new, then it's best we stop and move on to other tasks. This testing phase is not about "speculation". It is brute force, bottom up testing.

Anyway, I'm done with this side bar task for now.. I know exactly what the issues are related to this encoding issue. Most originate from in the original forums and the vast majority of those are spam posts which are not public. I'm not going to waste time cleansing spam, LOL nor writing code for remote outliers caused by strange encoding issues originating in old forums.

Thanks again for all the great testing, everyone!

Great job!
