Forum: texts Subject: The Ampersand Must Be Escaped

The HTML anchor tag (see http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_a.asp) must be provided and the ampersand must be escaped with & -- (see http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_entities.asp) in order to display the URL correctly: https://archive.org/details/texts&tab=forum . To see how to wrangle the ampersand in the wild, right-click on this very Forums page, select "View page source," then Ctrl-F the string "Dupenhagen Moonbat on 2016-05-16" and it'll show you exactly how to lasso that (ampersand) animal so it doesn't make a mess of your HTML-clad posts: Dupenhagen_Moonbat-view-source.jpg 'Bat out. P.S. The poster (Yours Truly) sincerely hopes the "view-source" screenshot displays as a flyin' fuggin' mess on your mobile. Look up from your "device," smell a rose, smile at someone (in person, not by "emoji)," hug your kid, then take her or his mobile (a thing which should hang harmlessly above their head over the crib, not grind away at their DNA with ionizing radiation) away, and give them a break from the damage your "gift" to them is doing to their geometrically multiplying cells.

Once again thanks Mr M. You did help link to the text forum but the good old main conglomerated entrance page was a bit like a village green. Now the entrance page is just floating icons without any real organization. The original entrance page housed a link to almost everything at the Archive on one screen.

This was the forum or village green.
