Posting NFOs correctly

Thought i'd post this incase you didn't know how. NFOs, well/tediously made ones anyway (Read: not infects :lol: ) are made to display differently when posted as Unicode. However, usually if you copy from an application such as a text editor or another non-unicode source it will be in ASCII mode.

To get an nfo to display properly, you need to copy it directly from a Unicode source. Now, if you acquire an nfo, you can use an nfo viewer to get it to look how it should. One such program is DAMN NFO Viewer, open your nfo in this and it will show it in unicode encoding.

Now you simply need to copy this version to clipboard and paste it directly into your post.

Dead-Donkey also has a special nfo markup, which will put the nfo on a white background for better viewing (use rather than code) that shrinks to the right size of the nfo. To use this simply wrap your nfo in the following markup:

Code:
[nfo]PASTED NFO IN UNICODE[/nfo]


The results will be like this:

1) An NFO with nfo tags, but copied from notepad:

Note
For some reason i've not been able to figure out yet, the preview window doesn't play ball. You can ignore the cramped spacing in previews.

Another note, Unicode data is larger than ascii. It will take longer to submit to the database since it takes up more space. Additionally, because its larger you can't post as much data in the same post. This usually won't be a problem, but it maybe if you are posting something like a collection, which is why its not a good idea to include lots of nfos in a single post.

I'm getting some kinda slow page glitch with my browser Maxthon v1.5.7 when I set it to view hhah pages with nfo's when my browser encoding is set to view unicode ( utf-8 ) .

Anyone notice this glitch with the same or anthor browser, its no big prob as I can step round it by changing page encoding to Western European but makes the nfos fonts look slightly messy. Would be nice if anyone can offer help on how to fix this slight glitch so nfos look as neat as they do in DAMN nfo viewer.

there's a known bug in IE, based on its terrible rendering engine that can't handle any non-standard text, which is the root cause of the slow down. This will only ne whenever it is directly rendering it. ie. only when scrolling over the unicode, not when it is out of view.

That's actually a bug in IE I'm afraid, its such a poorly coded engine that it doesn't render it correctly and its pretty easy to exploit. I dunno if they fixed it in IE7+ (which is listed as a critical security update :lol:). Practically, mozilla is the critical update for IE that will fix this, and the other several hundred bugs it has with simple things :lol:


Its all down to piss poor browser rendering engines usually, i've never used maxthon or know of its heritage (i doubt its netscape based on the description of the problem). I'll assume its an IE rehash based on the fact it can't render some simple extended character sets. I can't speak of its options, i would suggest writing a replacement CSS that overrides the fonts for pre tags as ASCII or something else (that will prevent crashes due to memory leaks on both here and fileheaven if your a user). However, since its IE based (assuming again), you probably won't get anything like that functionality provided.

The fact that i can cripple your browser by posting nothing more than characters from an extended character set is quite a serious bug with your browser. I can only assume based upon that, that Maxthon is an ie clone anyway.

For the sake of fixing the error and as a recommendation, download either Mozilla Firefox or Opera, both's rendering engines are extremely fast and efficient and the memory leak bug isn't there in either. They also allow features such as overriding styles which would fix the problem if only it were provided for you as standard.

short: I'm afraid its a known security bug for IE, and Maxthon (I would wager a pretty sum) is merely a tarted up IE. The fix is either Opera or Mozilla Firefox :)

It maybe fixed in IE7. If it isn't, i'm afraid microsoft simply won't fix the bug since they don't respond to security issues or user input (hence why IE is so shitty in the first place :lol: ) :(
