Bug Quotes Not Keeping Caps

    Just wondering if a quote should keep the capitalization of the quoted text. I just quoted someone in the general forum and it got rid of the capitalization of two words. (All letters were in caps)

    You can't post in caps alone, the engine is a little bit too sensitive sometimes. For example it doesn't allow chemical formulas like KOH. I guess that's the same problem.

    What do you mean? Like you can't put an entire post in caps? Or you can't quote words that are fully in caps?

    You can't put an entire post in caps (try). But perhaps for some reason the engine modified the quote as it was entire post or something like that. Or perhaps it analyses the quotes separately.

    I've noticed that certain formatting is lost when you quote, but I quoted the same post as you and the caps remained.

    I noticed this a while ago, and still haven't figured out what's going on. It even happens within words (see link below). :confused:
