Hi,
Has anyone had any problems with @ symbols on websites? We have created 2 UK sites and in the flash email form the @ sign don't work. The strange thing is that on one site holding shift and pressing 2 brings it up like on an american keyboard but on the other it's nowhere to be found.

What do you mean it doesn't work? It doesn't display or the functions of the @ symbol do not work?

If it doesn't display have you tried using the HTML character code & #64; instead? (without the space between & and #)...

Some possibilites are: Assuming that you are uploading by FTP, either the client or server has problems with the @ symbol, or the operating system on the server has problems with it. If you have an alternative method of uploading the file with those symbols you might want to try using it.

Yes the problem is that they aren't displaying. I think we've found a way around it though. The problem, I think, is that the flash movie was loading into a movie clip container. Outwith the container it is working alright.
