 Replying to [comment:9 ryan]:[[BR]][[BR]]

 hey ryan, i did everything you said, and much more. So after a half
 afternoon's trouble shooting, i think i found the root cause.[[BR]][[BR]]

 Let's first look at line 169 in formatting.php of the old version(works
 well), the function '''seems_utf8''':[[BR]]

 function seems_utf8($Str) { # by bmorel at ssi dot fr
         $length = strlen($Str);
         for ($i=0; $i < $length; $i++) {

 and line 190 in latest version:[[BR]]
 function seems_utf8(&$str) {
         $length = strlen($str);
         for ($i=0; $i < $length; $i++) {

 There is an '''&''' added, OMG... yes i use this function in my
 After i removed the & from the latest formatting.php, everything is on
 track now.[[BR]]
 It might be a type mistake, i guess, a deeply hidden bug, am i right?
