I thiink it's version 3; the screen shows XP when I log in. I know I don't have 7 or 8 versions. My computer is quite old; maybe 7 or 8 years old; a COMPAQ by name. There is a version called "Vista" but it came out after mine and I don't have Vista.
Sorry Richard. I had thought you had corrected the problem with your suggestions (which I followed) but after testing my incoming email using contractions I was disappointed to see that the apostrophe was still showing ' instead of a proper apostrophe. Could this be a virus of some sort? Gene
After much frustration over not having an apostrophe appear as such; (instead it is shown as: ') I finally asked the internet why this was happening? The best answer given by the internet is below:Best Answer - Chosen by Voters"It sounds like this is happening when you're putting something into some Internet form somewhere. You can't fix it. It's a problem that the webmaster of that site needs to fix. Basically, an apostrophe is a special character that means something in databases. Therefore, you can't actually store an apostrophe in a database. Instead, the web program converts it to "'s". Whomever programmed the web site forgot to include a function to translate that back to an actual apostrophe when fetching it from the database."The contraction normally used by me will now be ignored and I shall use complete words to express my thoughts.Gene
I think the problem is not one a customer can correct. From the info received from the inrternet it seems the difficulty arises from the database program failing to provide for the apostrophe symbol (') to be retrieved properly. Presumably the matter should be referred to the database programer. Thanks for trying go help. GENE
Richard: Today is Oct 15th; the apostrophe problem still exists. I have concluded it is beyond the consumer"s ability to correct. Answering the questions in the top of this email: (1) I have no more questions at this time(2) I already rated you which is supported by the content of this email, above. Thanks again for trying even though the problem was not corrected. Gene
