If you search in the chat history for something with two double quotes, something bad will happen. For example, try searching for ""abc"".

    And why, exactly, would you be doing this in the first place? Commented Apr 28, 2012 at 8:57
  • @TheEstablishment There is something with two double quotes in the chat history and I need to find it.

  • You could escape the quotation marks, but it doesn't seem to consider them when searching.

  • (@Mat, thanks for teaching me something! Just as you seem to take an interest in the matter: letting Google tell what's most used, "subsequent characters" is used about as often as "consecutive characters". That proves nothing, I know, but it seems subsequent can be used for order (without referring to time) too? Still then, consecutive might be better.)

  • @Arjan: that's more of a question for english.SE :) In my understanding, "subsequent" needs something to be subsequent to. "Two consecutive / denote the start of a comment, subsequent chars are ignored until end of line" - or something like that. But I may very well be wrong, I'm not a native speaker.
