You can literally see at the 0:16 second mark, at the exact moment that it changes the page count to page 26 and the auto-loader re-reads the thread title, the apostrophe in the browser title bar changes into a question-mark diamond.

Remember, it needs to be curly quotes or apostrophes (regular ones are not affected), and to see curly quotes affected, it has to be on a page that has been auto-loaded by IS. Content that was not auto-loaded by IS (for example, when you click on a specific page number or "Next" page or first enter a thread) is not affected.
Thank you. And that browser was Safari, correct?

No, that's Chrome. Remember, I mentioned that Safari's (and Firefox's) behavior is that it doesn't render anything in the spot where the curly character goes (see post #13). The boxes, spaces, diamonds, etc., are on Chromium-based browsers.

We've honestly been completely unable to replicate this

Even the video illustrating how to do it didn't help? If you'd like to post your own video executing the same actions, I'd be happy to point out where you might be going wrong in trying to reproduce it.

Re: Lack of apostrpohes

This issue is still present. Scrolled through to a page yesterday, and had a few posts with a whole bunch of boxes in them.

I tried to create an example within this thread to illustrate it, but was unable to make it work. Maybe this thread is not long enough to trigger it?

Nevertheless, the two canonical examples from the beginning of this thread (the ZSJL thread and Fantastic Four thread) are both still illustrating the issue in both Chrome and Firefox, including using this testing site:

https://www.browserling.com/browse/w...thread-26.html
https://www.browserling.com/browse/win7/firefox104/https://forum.dvdtalk.com/movie-talk/652611-zack-snyder%92s-justice-league-snyder-2021-%97-spoiler-filled-reviews-thread-26.html

Re: Lack of apostrpohes

It is infinite scroll-related.

When I load this page in a Chrome incognito window (because I have infinite scroll disabled for my account):
https://forum.dvdtalk.com/movie-talk...ws-thread.html

I don't see the problem after the initial page load. After scrolling past post 30 or so, some apostrophes break, including the one in the page title that was previously showing correctly.

When scrolling that far, a POST request is made for https://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread...=652611&page=4. Broken apostrophes are in the json response as unicode character codes:
\u0092

Working apostrophes are in the json as actual apostrophes.

Re: Lack of apostrpohes

^ good catch. I see it happen right between posts 50 and 51 when infinite scroll is enabled.

Re: Lack of apostrpohes

Interesting that the post right after the one indicated has the apostrophe.

It's only the "curled" apostrophes that are problematic. Traditional apostrophes aren't special characters and don't need any accomodation.

Re: Lack of apostrpohes

I sorta remember that was mentioned before. I don't think I've ever seen the option of a different apostrophe.

Some programs and phone keyboards use curled apostrophes by default.

Here's an example from MS Word:
