A couple of years ago, I created an "ed itt hisp age" site for mountain biking , though I didn't get many chances to keep it current. Now I start seeing a few other spots where weblogs mention mountain biking -- Will Leshner (thanks for the kind words),
and an MTB trail being built
in Wales . It's a start...
Note the odd spacing in "ed itt hisp age" above. I tried two other ways to spell that, with my own HTML brackets <a href=...> and </a> around the linking text. But Radio has its own idea of what you mean to link to if you happen to use the word e*itthispage either as one word (it links to www.editthispage.com) or if you space it out at the word boundaries (it links to a DaveNet piece). Weird weird weird.
later: Weirder yet, a small test of this weirdness doesn't manage to exhibit the behavior at all. Was it cosmic rays?
MUCH later: It was Radio's "shortcuts", i.e., text macro/abbreviations. All you have to do to get normal quotes is to escape them with backslashes. Of course, you first have to notice that you've accidentally run into one.
