9th September '07 - The Ampersand Symbol &.

I discovered that even though Microsoft Interent Explorer allows for the ampersand symbol to be used in file names, a lot of other web browsers and web forums don't. I didn't know this and a lot of my pictures that I was posting in forums refused to display.

I always test my websites in different resolutions and different text sizes, I even account for people that don't have broadband so I make sure to have lots of text at the start for them to read while the rest of the page downloads. I even use standard fonts just in case they are using a MAC instead of a PC. I even tested my websites on a Dreamcast when that was popular. But it never crossed my mind about using the '&' symbol in file names.
