OK/okay/ok

5 Comments and 9 Shares
After changing it back and forth several times and consulting with internet linguist Gretchen McCulloch, I settled on "ok" in my book How To, but I'm still on the fence. Maybe I should just switch to "oK."

Sometimes in older books they spell it "okeh" which is really wild.

Who runs this bot? Quote marks haven't worked for a while.

Check your font encoding and browser settings. Quote marks seem fine here: https://imgur.com/3j3YNk6

They fail on the Android app.

Correct, I should have specified. They work fine on desktop, just not on the Android app. Maybe it's just an issue with the app rendering certain characters in comments. I may post an issue on the Github. ("Test.") EDIT: My quotation marks work fine, as do the quotes in mburch42's comment. I guess the Android app handles comments differently, as the HTML of joeythesaint's link becomes visible.

Agree, AltTextBot's are the only broken ones on Android. All look correct on iOS and on a desktop browser. I think the 'bot is sending quot entity versus the actual quotes and it happens to render wrong on Android (though this theory doesn't follow Occam, which would blame the Android app).

@yaomtc @tedder I run the bot. Thanks for the report, I'll check it out. EDIT: it should now be fixed for future alt texts.

Eat it, nerd!

I may or may not have been updating a little irresponsibly over the past few weeks because I was so excited to share these pages with you. Now that the interlude is half over, the update schedule’s going to switch to Sundays and Wednesdays for a while. Thank you so much for reading!
