Fun with Numbers

Recommended Posts

I tried to post a number that looks like this:

 

%OO1OOOOO

 

But the forum software won't let me. It converts it to 100000. Take a look:

 

  100000

 

What in the heck is making it screw up?

I have noticed this before. The workaround is to put a formatting tag in there as such: %00100000.

Doesn't seem to work like that in a code snippet box:

 

%[b][/b]00100000

OK, I think I have the fix. This seems to work:

 

"& # 3 7 ;"

 

I'll just use that instead of this "%" when there is a problem:

 

%00100000

I think its an anti-hack filter on the form submission. Its doing that to avoid getting a literal zero char in the middle of a text form.

 

If you add an extra percent and 2 extra zeros you can get around it.

 

Eg. Use %%00001 to get %001

So now we have two ways to get around it.
