The inverted "?"

    Question

  • This is forum related.  In two threads one in EWSP and EBlend I have seen these inverted "?".  Are these intentional code symblols oru have I picked up some kind of font bug?

    Thanks,

    MIKE E

  • Thank You Cheryl

    Okay how would you type that character? If one had to? Just curious

  • It has nothing to do with typing.

    But if you wanted to, simply turn the page upside down.

    I have only worked on one site in Spanish, and fortunately it was just making changes to an existing site and it was all in WordPress, so I never had to deal with the body copy of the site, just headings, graphics, photos, and navigation.

    But that is a good question: If I just use the  ¿  in an otherwise English site (or any other foreign character), will it always display properly?

    "Page upside down" --> TYPEWRITER, not monitor. :)

  • Typewriter? Typewriter? What is this "typewriter" of which you speak?

  • You know - that heavy thing sitting next to the rotating platform that has a needle for getting sound out of vinyl discs....

  • Sid, they are talking about inverted, not reversed and inverted, and not rotated. Get with the program geez.

    Right-click on the desktop, Graphics Options>Rotation>180 Degrees. I don't know if this still works in 7, but in XP it sure is fun to do to people who leave their computer unattended and unlocked! ;-)

  • Not available in my XP.  I assume that's really a function of your graphics hardware cababilities.

  • You're right. I hadn't noticed before, but it is controlled by Intel graphics. We have many assorted computers here running XP, and all do the rotation, so I assumed wrongly that it was a function of the system. Now I see that all of them use Intel cards. Another lesson learned, even in a silly thread!

    Couple of ways, either in the monitor driver or if you have tablet pc edition in XP. The tablet bits were included in Vista & Win 7 so it should be available in both.
