Smile Engrish (or Japanese-English)

I recently found a website (by accident) devoted to Engrish, or Japanese-English. Here it is: http://www.engrish.com/index.html. I hope no-one takes offense with my putting it in the forum/humor section, as it is meant to be humorous, not a slur of any kind.

Most of the website is devoted to bad translations of English, or "Japanese-accented" English.

Hey this may sound pretty stupid but the same problem when I post my site on forums.
The prob is that the address includes the period at the end.

http://www.engrish.com/index.html.<-

The fixed link is

http://www.engrish.com/index.html

without the period.

Yup -- I've brought this issue up before with the developers of the software, but it's difficult, they say, to figure out if the punctuation mark is part of the URL or not... I'll try raising the problem up with them again to see what they think.

There are ways of getting around this problem by using the "url" tags. You can see more information on how to do this here.

Usually when you put a period at the end of a sentence you are gonna put a space or a CR+LF after it. Since a URL cannot contain any space o CR+LF in it with a simple check you are likely to avoid 95% of this kind of error.

Hope to have been useful.

I usually just put the period one space after... http://www.engrish.com/index.html . Like that... just a helpful hint from the resident computer nerd
