A <font> problem |
July 06, 2005, 20:34:32
Hi guys. Since I updated my tabsrmm from version *.94 to *.95 a strange tag appeared when chatting with my ICQ contacts(users who are using the ICQ app). It's like <font lang="0">message</font>. It is included in every incoming message and is very annoying. I tried to use *.94 again and had no problems with it but I miss the new features and that's why I want to use *.95. Any ideas how to fix this? The interesting thing is that when I chat with users using Miranda I don't get this tag. :o

That's not coming from tabSRMM. Are you using IEView? The current version is not 100% compatible with tabSRMM .95, unless you use templates.

Yes, I am using IEView 1.0.3.5. And I don't use templates. When I use a template, it is the same- I still receive this annoying tag. As I said above the problem started when I updated tabsrmm. And when i switch back to *.94 there's no such problem. So i figured that the source of the problem would be tabsrmm. Well, I guess I'll be waiting for an update.

This really looks like the icq protocol does not properly filter out formatting sequences. ICQ clients sending such formatting tags.

I suggest you switch back to the default message log and check if it's still there....

Well, then it comes from the protocol. The default message log shows the message unmodified, unless bbcodes are used, but [ font ] isn't even a supported bbcode.

Thank you very much. That fixed things. It seems I have been using a corrupt version of ICQ.dll .
