special characters in ADD A LINK
I posted this early last week, but unfortunately didn't receive any replies, so I'm re-posting hoping for some help...

I searched the forum for threads about special characters, but they all seem to deal with using them when creating a category. My problem is using them when adding a listing.

In admin, if I try to enter St. Andrews ,for example, as part of a street address when adding a listing, I get an error message. I am forced to remove the "." from the address. This also happens with other forms of punctuation.

My concern is not so much when I add a listing in admin. My concern is when a visitor to my site fills out the form to add their company to my directory. Sooner or later, someone is going to use punctuation in their address, and they'll get an error message.


Also, in my main directory listing, the subcategories seem to be right up against each other, and it's hard to tell that they are separate subcategories. See www.waterwater.ca. Is there a way to put a space between them?

How do I modify to overcome this problem? Thanks for your help.


P.S. Hope re-posting after 1 week is OK...
