User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041110 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Thunderbird/1.0 The option "Display emoticons as graphics" in Edit/Preferences/Display is rather misleading, as it has other side effects unrelated to emoticons. For example, enabling this option also causes Thunderbird to render text such as a^2 as a superscript, which may not be desirable in cases like a^12, which results in only the 1 being written superscript. Either fix the behavior or change the label, please. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
(In reply to comment #0) > enabling this option also causes Thunderbird to render text such as a^2 as a > superscript So *that'* how you make that work! I always have emoticons turned off, and couldn't figure out why I could never see the superscripting that other bugs are filed around. > which may not be desirable in cases like a^12, which results in > only the 1 being written superscript. I am seeing multiple digits be raised: x^1234567890 raises all ten digits but: x^3.14 only raises the 3 x^3a doesn't raise anything Are there any other rendering features besides superscripting that get turned on with that preference, to your knowledge?

> a^12, which results in only the 1 being written superscript Not true. I think fixing this bug would overcomplicate the UI for almost no use. The only option I see is to create a new pref (in this case, makes code larger and probably slower) or to entirely remove the features. Marking WONTFIX (valid bug, but decided against). > Are there any other rendering features besides superscripting that get > turned on with that preference Yes, only minor ones: - superscript (as discussed) - +/- - \f = formfeed (spoiler?) <http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/netwerk/streamconv/converters/mozTXTToHTMLConv.cpp#902>
