Text limitations

In alphanumeric textfields these special characters are rejected:

*) On a device running iOS 11 (or newer), quotation marks can be 'straight' or 'smart' - the latter is accepted, but is probably useless on a PC/Mac.

A textarea fields may contain most characters and line breaks, except a (straight) quotation mark immediately followed by comma (',).

Emoji symbols are not accepted.

To protect the Sailor Logbook Website against hacking, some words must be avoided in all fields. If you use an illegal word - for example 'modify' - a warning pops up when you leave the field, and it cannot be saved before corrected.
