That's because there are, for example, two different kinds of dashes in MS Word. You have to search and, especially, replace with the right kind. Look up the difference in the en dash vs the em dash in MS Word.
For starters: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/msoffice/four-ways-to-insert-an-em-dash-in-a-word-document/2721
I have typed text into a post here, copied it into Microsoft Word to spell/grammar check it, then copied it back into the post box with the above-mentioned truncations as a result.

That's because MS Word converts the dash you type here to an em-dash, which causes either the page code or database here that stores the posts to gag when you paste it back into a post. I've even encountered the inability to paste from one post to another on this site without hitting the special character truncation bug.

And what has UBB done about this longstanding bug?

Awesome report, Rob. I enjoyed every word of it, and learned so much. Thank you for taking the time to write it. The care you took with it is obvious.

Go to the UBB site (link at bottom of page) and see what you can find out in their forums.

Could be a MySQL bug instead and have nothing to do with UBB Threads.

A superb write-up Rob. It deserves a bigger audience---at least post it in the TR section of Supertopo.

The last time I thought I might be an Alpinist was in the 70's. After escaping unscathed from a massive and deadly rockfall in the Alps, I decided I had used up all my nine lives in one sitting. Henceforth, I concluded, back-country rock-climbing, Wind River and Sierra style, was more suited to my temperament and tolerance for risk, and it proved to be not without adventure.

Maybe a R&S or MP slide show should be in the works. Always a better venue for lots of photos.
