    I figured out how to say sοrry. It works, and will have to do until the forum software is fixed.

    What you do is replace the letter 'o' with the small Greek letter Omicron ( U+03BF).

    To find that letter in the character set, you need to open Character map. You can find it by opening:
    Start/All programs/Accessories/System Tools/Character Map. Open Character Map and scroll down the available characters until you find the Greek character set. Look for the small 'o'. Click on it then press Select. Then press Copy and it will be copied into your clipboard.

    Write the post you want to say sοrry in and replace the normal letter 'o' with the one on the clipboadrd with Ctrl V (Paste). The software won't then recognise it as 'sοrry' and it will print it as seen.

    Very good and it got me thinking Eric. This is easier.

    Type "sorry" and highlight one or two letters in the word (it doesn't matter which or how many) and select font color black. Seems to work.

    This will work when you quote or edit a post too. Click "Quote" to see that I mean.

    It's just sorry, for some unknown reason. Rude words get asterixised (I just made that word up), sorry just doesn't show up.

    I've found it is easier just to not do anything I need to apologise for ;)

    Either that or just don't get caught :D

    Neat ideas :D
    However, as a computer clutz I have to say some of the folks on here have just got far too complicated minds :rolleyes:
    And I still can't see why s orry can't simply be removed from the banned words list :confused:

    cheers,
    Toddy
