2016 HG: HELP: The Roman Revenge. A bit of trivia useful only if it happens to you.

The Roman Revenge. 
A bit of trivia useful only if it happens to you.
  • Why does the first one work as a hypergrid address?
  • And the second one does not?

Answer:  Look at the text retyped in Courier

  • grid.kitely.com:8002:Cookie II
  • grid.kitely.com:8002:Cookie ll
  • The first example was in Arial.  
  • Arial capital I and Arial number 1 are indistinguishable.
  • But obviously different in Courier

Take away advice:

  • If a HG address does not work, check for font and unicode problems.
  • Don't use Roman numerals in naming things you may want to search for later.

Latin is a language.
At least it used to be.
First it killed the Romans.
And now it's killing me.
