Below is what I'm trying to post followed by two pics. 1rst pic is live preview and  2nd pic is post preview. I have a fresh install also that has no mods and I get the same problem. The pics are from my fresh install.

[b]Motorcycle returned to Healthcare worker after neighbor sees FOX21 story[/b]

COLORADO SPRINGS — A motorcycle stolen from the Memorial Hospital Central parking lot now returned to its owner.

This is an update to a story FOX21 News published [url=https://www.fox21news.com/top-stories/it-wasnt-just-a-motorcycle-healthcare-worker-offers-help-to-man-who-stole-his-bike/]last week, on Wednesday.[/url]

Josh Perry an emergency services pharmacist at Colorado Springs, had his motorcyle stolen from the hospital parking lot during the early morning hours on Labor Day.

He got off from his shift at 2 a.m. and his bike was not in the spot where he left it. The bike is a 2003 Harley Davidson. Perry said it’s a 100-year anniversary bike with custom tailpipes and saddlebags.

Perry said this bike has a lot of emotional meaning and with a newborn in the house and two young kids, he hopes the bike will make it home.

“All I want is my motorcycle back. I want to be able to give it my kids, I wanted it to be something that gets passed down to my family. It has emotional meaning to me. It was given to me by my father and I just want to be able to enjoy that. I don’t want to just buy a new bike, I want that one,” Josh Perry said.

Is the hyphen after Colorado Springs one of Microsoft's weird characters, or a genuine HTML hyphen? Try changing it.

Yup that was it and a few other ones it didn't like, like the commas and the quotes! Thanks for the help that worked!

This can happen on forums that are not utf8 that use utf8 characters.

I would suggest a utf8 conversion.

Every forum ends up using utf-8 characters to some extent these days. It's just about impossible to avoid them.

Exactly.  And converting smf to utf8 addresses any such problems.
