If you're using the default CSS and IE, you can see the quoteobx as a big column of words :

http://wiki.beyondunreal.com/wiki/Wiki_Markup


Instead of looking like :

You can put quoted text in a neat box.
All Wiki formats apply there.

It goes:


You
can
put
quoted
text
in
a
neat
box.

All
Wiki
formats
apply
there.

Can't reproduce that (with Internet Explorer 5). Which version of Internet Explorer are you using?

I am noticing the same thing. I am using IE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030-422.1633. I did a bit of testing and it seems that it only goes wrong when using it in a table.

To reproduce just put the following code in a Wiki page:| <wiki>> You can put quoted text in a neat box.
> All Wiki formats apply there.
</wiki> | <pre>> You can put quoted text in a neat box.
> All Wiki formats apply there.</pre>

I have IE 5 and it's fine in that :)

Have you considered trying Firebird?

IE is my browser of choice simply because it's linked with explorer and I can keep all my nice custom buttons in one place.

I know IE has issues, but since it's the most common browser and an easy fix it might be worth looking into, being as the majority will be IE users.

Well... I'm not sure what buttons you might have that are useful both for web browsing and file management :con: ...
but it appears you have a choice: either live with this bug, or upgrade to a browser that conforms to standards.

I can't reproduce it on IE5 - I will have a look on IE6 when I next get to a PC that has it, probably tomorrow.

:D

I've attached a picture of my buttons.

To my knowledge IE 6.0.2800.1106IC is the latest version of IE, I don't think there's been a recent patch. :S?

Ah well, it doesn't bother me, I can live with weirded quotes, just thought it'd be an easy fix. :)

Yup, it's the latest version of IE. It's been out for a while and it's full of errors that make coding webpages a pain in the butt.

I don't know your browsing habits but your links bar looks mostly useless. Why not just make a quicklaunch menu in your taskbar? It's much more robust.

When I was using just one monitor, my taskbar was double-thick, with the running program tabs on one bar and my launch buttons on the other. Now that I am running dual-screens, it's just one long bar with my launch buttons right below, and the program tabs on the second screen (I can just alt-tab those anyway). I'll post a screenie sometime when I'm at home, but that can free you up to use a real browser like Mozilla or Opera.

M-m-m-m-monster bump! :D

Looks like things have changed a lot with browser habits , for one, I've joined the masses all flocking to Firefox, and the whole links bar thing I hardly use any more. Mainly 'cos I'm spending less time with my PC these days. :(

Dual Monitor eh? Swanky. I gotta build me a bigger desk first, but I can imagine the benefits of having a set-up like that. I've got a 21" sitting out in my spare room feeling unloved that could be utilised for some Ued/PS side-by-side. :)

Yeah, it's fantastic for editing purposes. It's mostly useless for everything else, although it does give me a bit more (virtual) desktop space to work with, and of course when games fire up, the second monitor auto-hibernates since it's not doing anything. But for UEd it's fantastic. I have the 3d window taking up my entire first screen, the top view taking half of the second screen, and the side and front views each taking one of the two remaining quarters. There's SO much more space to work with, and to properly select actors in the 3d view. :D
