Subject Re: Changing a font style
Date Sat, 08 Dec 2012 18:20:12 GMT
I found a bug when emoticon position is calculated incorrectly. For
example, you can write these messages to the chat:
"a normal :) text" - the emoticon is displayed normal
"<b>a text :) with html tags</b>" - the emoticon is moved to the right
