Just spotted these.. weird (Unicode?) characters on the buttons where you can take action on the Mod dashboard

Mod dashboard

What are those characters?

(on WIndows 7 64-bit, Chrome)

Inspect element shows ellipses

<input title="close this question; no more answers will be accepted" class="close-question" id="close-question-336724" type="button" value="close question (4) …">

  • That's a NUL (0x0) character or Newline. Sep 16, 2011 at 17:54

    Those aren't buttons. You need to print the page out, check one of the boxes and mail or fax your official moderator decision back to the Stack Exchange offices ASAP!

They’re ellipses. It’s kind of weird that your browser/OS can’t find the glyph when it’s using the right font for the rest of the button, but that’s Windows for you.

It's looking correct now.

mod-dashboard

Although the code remains the same:

<input title="close this question; no more answers will be accepted" class="close-question" id="close-question-336724" type="button" value="close question (4) …">

Diff says the characters are same.

And there has been no updates to the browser... so shrugs

    We didn't change anything; and if you check, it is (correctly) using &hellip; in the source. Basically, your machine had a sneeze, then got over it. Sep 18, 2011 at 8:50
