Is your approximately showing?

Do you see ≈ ?

Re: Is your approximately showing?

The approximately sign wasn't showing for me before likely because I was using my phone. On my computer it works fine.

Re: Is your approximately showing?

I saw

≈

∞

in that order.

Tried it in FF, chrome and opera.

Re: Is your approximately showing?

In HTML source code, if you just put an unicode character that is how it renders. To render it correctly it should be put like this � in the source code.

The parser has a bug, it is not parsing the things inside the hide tag.

This should not render

but this will:

P.S.: No, it is not working

Hmm, but I have shown some light in where to start debugging.

Re: Is your approximately showing?

I think because chrome follows Google and not the prescribed standards. The developers of Chrome have realised that representing unicode characters as HTML codes should actually be needless.

Re: Is your approximately showing?

gAr tried it in chrome and it didn't work.

Edit: It doesn't work in my browser now either. I am seeing the same three characters you all are.
