guillemet

I'd been having a fair bit of trouble getting the right-pointing guillemet (») to print from a javascript.

It used to work a treat on a page I did for NECT but since I updated Opera it stopped working (needless to say it had also stopped working in Internet Explorer as well).

What was happening?

The script I was using needed 3 instances of the right-pointing guillemet to be printed on the screen depending upon different circumstances. As I said, it used to work, but then it started printing », which was a bit of a bugger!

So I replaced » with »; which didn't bloody work either!

ARSE angry!

I was getting right naffed off as you can imagine so I tried placing each character of the entity code with its html entity code and that just printed out a whole long string of entity codes... confused

Then I read this and decided that I needed to try Unicode because: "Unicode provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language.".

(Each time I edit this page the nice HTML character codes get replaced with a proper right-pointing guillemet... so I'm gonna try to stop editing it wink)

Anyway, the Unicode is something like \u00BB

Small stuff

I want one of these, I really do need one of these, they're tiny little washing machines that use no electricity and would be just too cool for me living on a boat... and not wanting to go to the laundrette for fear of being accosted by some piss head.

This one is from Lehmen's and is called the "Wonder Clean".

But this one is from the Laundry Alternative and is called the Wonder Wash.

Lehman's is cool but I'm not overly sure about their shipping policy though...

I got the free version of Morpheus Photo Morpher off of a cover disk and have been playing. These pictures of the kids are well old so should be reasonably safe I reckon. and I like how their faces aren't all that different really:

Sprog's faces morphing

This is one of me, believe it or not wink, I think I was a little the worse for wear:

30 Years on 15 seconds

After visiting Crick I saw some lamps and then came across this site: Den Haan, I wonder if they sell to the UK direct?
