It's been a while in regards to this topic but I wanted to give an update. I am not sure what made me test this just now...........

If I type ½ with UBB the post shows up as blank.

However if I use that same ½ or any fraction symbol using html or ubb and html it appears. So I have narrowed it down to just using UBB setting.

Is there something besides upgrading that can fix this or is there a setting that I can have all posts use html/ubb combo?

Thanks in advance and Happy New Year
