And in the "Special(s) Thanks" there's the non-existent word "assitance", should be "assistance" surely?

And on the softography+ AB2 page, there's a link to the TA page that's dead.

Wow, it seems I have not posted here in a long time...

Wow, it seems I have not fixed a lot of these picky website errors!! I'll sort those out this evening. Hopefully.

There's weird characters strewn throughout the website wherever the pound symbol or various unicode characters are used:

Looks to me like you've managed to double- or triple-encode it o_O

Everytime Dream17 moves servers all the Unicode characters get garbled, I have no clue how to sort it out now without manually going through everything. :|

I expect somewhere/somehow when you move servers you're doing an ISO-8859-1 (or Windows-1252) to UTF-8 conversion.

Even though this has already been done once or twice before ;)

I would've expected this to be a non-issue given MySQL seems to store the encoding used on its tables, but given the wildly different software versions different hosts can be running, I'm not surprised. This is certainly not the first webstie where I've seen it happen, I remember a bunch of content on my OpenXcom website was lost during a server move due to Unicode... 2013 and we still can't handle non-ASCII input... :|
