Subject: Odd Q. and A. replacement in forum post?
 

I replied to a post on the forums (Research about coffee) and tried to reply with a sentence that read along the lines of

"Q. 15 and 16 are duplicates"

but (and I did double check) when posting it replaced "Q." with "A." ?!

Any ideas why?

 
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

If this works, it would be an example:

  1. 15 and 16 seem to be duplicates

Okay?

Definitely typed "Q." there, and it changed it to "A." ?!

It appears that the forum is interpreting the letter followed by a period as a lettered list, i.e. a., b., c., etc.  You can preview your post to see what it will look like, you may just have to avoid starting a line with a single letter followed by a period, I don't know how to override this in a post.  See below.

  1. This line starts with Q followed by a period
  2. This line starts with X followed by a period
    Q  This line is a Q with no period

Aah! I see! Well, thank you for your answer - I'll just have to write 'Question' in full in future...
...it's a hard life! ;)
