    The problems with the UBB parsing and automatic tagging have been fixed. If you encounter further problems (e.g. wrongly parsed quotes or something), please post to this thread.

    Please notice that only new posts are affected by this change. Old messages with wrongly parsed output have not been changed (but can be changed, if need be, by the original author by editing the message and saving it again).

    The automatic tagging has also been improved to cover software items (such as FFDShow and Google Earth), games (eg. World of Warcraft), hardware items (like the Nokia N95 mobile phone, the beautiful Sony KDL-40W2000 1080p LCD television or the manufacturer Samsung), more glossary items and file extensions (my DVD-RW is filled with .avi and .zip files) etc. etc.

    Things like http://www.nero.com/ or http://digg.com/tech_deals/Bt_chat_com_Supports_Anti_DRM_Movement , which caused problems earlier, should now work properly.

    Also quotes, like

    Hovering over the [ + quote] link at the bottom right corner of the message now correctly highlights the entire message to be quoted.

    We've done our best to test the changes beforehand, but obviously problems can still arise. Hopefully they will little more than a minor annoyance.

    One change that will still be made to the system is disabling some terms from being automatically tagged from the glossary (e.g. proper and some other common words)

    Again, if you encounter problems with the message parsing, please post examples to this thread, so we can inspect them and fix the errors.
