Sounds like you're trying to post an emoticon (from the iPad keyboard and not the forum)? Certainly an unsupported character in your post.

Interestingly I tried to post a screen shot (which I usually email to myself because they're too big for the forum) and find that my new phone doesn't ask me what size I'd like to send it as!

I'd say that's the case too - Datsundrew had a similar issue and it was driving him mad as he could post the exact same content on another forum (RetroRides - which does support iPad and iPhone emoticons).

Only use our smileys, and it should be fine.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

OK just worked from laptop as well
Seems that one was due to a smiley that slipped through on a cut and paste
Many thanks guys I
