It's not just the titles from which symbols are being stripped

I started a thread this morning, "ADP Reports 216,000 Increase in November Payrolls, Topping Expectations".

It is at http://www.democraticunderground.com/10141627710

I linked to three earlier threads there, the way I've always done with the "link" button. One for example was "Payroll employment rises by 161,000 in October; unemployment rate changes little (4.9%)", at http://www.democraticunderground.com/10141615960.

This morning it was fine (work Dell laptop, Windows 7, MSIE-something). Tonight, the | symbol had been stripped, and the links could not be seen. They were still there, but with the | symbol gone, the software did not see the characters as a linked thread.

I put the symbols back in the three links, and they appear again. This was at my public library (Dell desktop, Windows 10, MSIE-something).

Thank you.

1. It seems to be a Unicode thing

For example, El Niño becomes El Nio, It’s becomes Its.
