Default Letter s being replaced on mobile devices

When posting here from a mobile device the letter "s", not sure if it affects '"S" as well or not, is being replaced by "s". This is making posts very difficult to read and it shows properly on the mobile device so the poster does not know about it until he or she logs on and reads on a computer.

Can I just confirm the device and browser you're using?
I have been seeing this on some sites as well.

I don't think there is much activity there anymore. And yes, it is about as fun as you with think with a bunch of code nerds that have no sense of humor...

I just want to add that it seems to be an issue on the desktop browser side not the mobile side. When I view the forum on my mobile even where that gibbersish is my phone browser sees it as an s.

Has gotten worse, now getting S also.
Oops just noticed it is just a capital S


Sure but resistance between winding won't tell you this. If it was shorted to ground then between winding would read infinite wouldn't it.

The same Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 8.0.0 using the native Chrome browser that is causing the issue when I read it on a destop or laptop. On my phone it shows the s correctly though, that is why in the first thread I had replied to that someone asked for English I replied can't you read? It appeared fine on my phone.

Thank you for the information,

We're gathering up the devices and browser so that we can help the techs pinpoint this.

Please standby for more updates.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Ed
