[somewhat off-topic. Running Windows 10, with latest update of Firefox]

While writing a recent post to the newsgroups-- using the official web portal
like I'm using now--I happened to include the word 'expose', but with the final
'e' having an accent mark. In the Windows Character Map app (for the Calibri
font), that specific e is "U+00E9 Latin Small Letter E With Acute" and the
keystroke to create it is Alt+0233.

When I went back to view my own post later, any full line of text with that
word/letter in it was completely missing; just a blank line there.

I rarely if ever use such special text characters, so this was an unwelcome
surprise.

Doing another test, I've discovered that the web-portal 'editor' for writing
posts is where the problem lies-- it wipes out the sentence before sending it,
when the "Preview Message" button is pressed.
