  • Could someone help me with html formatting in a FR environment?

    I'm building a table for an FR friend and I did it the way I'd do it for my own website. It's a double table, to get an attractive border, and then a series of rows of various colors and numbers of columns. And, indeed, it's glorious on my website. But when we put the complete table into a thread or into my profile, the outer tables are completely removed by FR and the format of the rows becomes of varying lengths with missing borders around the cells, though both surrounding tables had their borders set correctly. Does this ring...
  • Sumo: Takayasu finishes strong with win over champion Kakuryu

    OSAKA (Kyodo) -- Ozeki Takayasu may have finished without a title, but he finished the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament in style with a win over yokozuna Kakuryu on Sunday. Takayasu and Kakuryu were forced to refight the tournament's final bout on the 15th and final day at Edion Arena Osaka, where judges were unable to decide a winner in their first try. In the second try, Takayasu was too fast for the grand champion and easily forced him out. Takayasu has now won 12 bouts in consecutive tournaments. Kakuryu, who clinched his fourth career championship on Saturday, finished with a...

    The defeat of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria rapidly accelerated during President Trumps first year in office, beginning with the fall of East Mosul on Jan. 25, and continuing with a cascading series of defeats for the brutal terrorist group over the next 11 months. The campaign liberated twice as many people and twice as much territory as in the previous 28 months under President Barack Obama, according to Defense Department figures. On Jan. 20 the day Trump was inaugurated an estimated 35,000 ISIS fighters held approximately 17,500 square miles of territory in both Iraq and...

    You might already know we have a pretty weird system for electing presidents. Candidates can win with fewer votes, some states matter more than others, some votes matter more than others, and all due to an ad hoc political compromise between 18th century wigged gentlemen. Per their decision, we dont vote for our leaders directly, but instead choose intermediaries, known as electors, who then (usually) vote for who we tell them to. Since each state is given two free electors regardless of how few people live there, voters from sparsely populated states like Wyoming are able to pack over three...

    I have found that the site Replace smart quotes with regular straight quotes fixes the problem Free Republic recently has with quotes and dashes. For example, a New York Times article As Germany Welcomes Migrants, Sexual Attacks in Cologne Point to a New Reality that when originally pasted looks like this: COLOGNE, Germany — In early December, the Cologne police made their New Year’s Eve preparations. Drawing on the previous year’s experience, they identified their biggest worry as pickpocketing and fireworks among the crowds. So they increased their holiday deployment, to 142 from 88, concentrating on the banks of the...

    I don't know if this has impacted anybody else, but in recent weeks, I've noticed that HTML special characters are not rendering properly in HTML posts. For example, the character “ is rendering as “, the character ” is rendering as ”, and so on. A screenshot of a typical thread is here: Needless to say, that is really irritating. There is a workaround for this: replace these special characters with their corresponding HTML codes. The ones that FR is currently having problems with are as follows: ‘ "left single quote" &lsquo; ’ "right single quote" &rsquo; “ "left double...
