Default Corrupted text on TOTV

I’m using an iPad Pro. Beginning 5/13, text is corrupted both in the forums and individual messages. I’ve opened a TOTV ticket but curious if anyone else is seeing the same corrupted text?

Is it possible you changed a font setting on your computer? I am not familiar enough with your equipment to go beyond that suggestion. Perhaps someone in the Apple group can comment.

Yes, the comma after “yes” is under the “s” etc.

No changes other than an iPad reboot to see if that would clear up the corrupted text.

It is happening as well on other sites such as Facebook. A new nasty virus of another form. I have no patience with new nasty viruses.

Default Try a different browser.

I am using the “Duck Duck Go” browser on my iPad and have no issues.

Safari and Firefox browsers (on my iPad) have this problem.

I also use an iPad Pro, using software 13.3.1. I didn’t post anything yesterday, but as you can see, I am certainly having trouble now with punctuation and spacing. I did not have any problems yesterday when text messaging or writing in FaceBook.

Yes I see it too, including on many messages in this thread. Why would we not think the problem is with Talk of the Villages website, not our various computers or browser/ search engine choices? I don’t see this looking at other websites, only here.
Look at all the errors just in this post!

I’m having the same issue and it’s only with TotV. I just noticed it today. I’m using an iPad, but with the old 13.3.1 version of iOS. It happens with both Safari and Chrome. This sure looks like a TotV issue. I’ll try it with my computer later to see if it shows there, if it happens just with posts made with an iPad, or if it is with all posts.

My iPad with “Duck Duck Go” browser is still fine, no corrupt text. Safari and Firefox still has the problem.

So using Safari I switched back to the old version of TOTV and the problem went away (same on Firefox).

So it seems to be this new version of TOTV that is the issue.

To clarify - I am using the “Duck Duck Go” browser APP with no issue.
