      Description

      The little triangles separating breadcrumb items are missing, so deciphering what is what on the breadcrumb is a headache.

      I thought it might the issue from MDL-6685 but in Safari, OSX, the separators look like graphics.

          I am of course referring to moodle.org site now running under 1.7

          They are supposed to be graphics, and I see them (in 1.7 with Firefox). I believe one of the reasons they were changed to graphics (in 1.6) was because as text they don't work properly with RTL languages.

          They look ok to me and have been pretty well tested (although not in Netscape on OS9!).

          Currently we have ditched the graphics in favour of text symbols.

          I suspect/hope you may have just not got the new style sheet. Can you try "CTRL-Refresh" in your browser?

          Sorry, no dice. Refreshing does not change anything. I went as far as restarting computer. I wonder what those characters that look as triangles are. In Safari they are orange solid triangles pointing right. I wonder what font is that. I have quite a few extras loaded and can see properly sites in languages like Polish, Russian, Korean, Chinese, but this may require some font with symbols.

          The problem is with the following code in the breadcrumb

          <span class="sep">►</span>

          This entity translates into some non-ascii character (at least according to BBEdit). The problem seems to be Netscape-specific, so my guess is it lacks of the support for the extended entity tables. I say that because iCab displays a graphic character here. It is a down-arrow, which looks strange in a breadcrumb but at least there is a visual separation.

          Sorry, wanted to add that it seems to me that this is a special case of MDL-6685 after all. Looks like the new breadcrumbs were not properly tested under Mac OS9 (admittedly a dying out OS but still fairly common on schools).

          I have just installed 1.7.1+ and I see no change. Whether I agree or not with the fix is irrelevant. It does not work for Netscape7 under OS9. The separator is still missing.
