I have kind of a weird problem that maybe someone can help with. When I type into my mail or a microsoft word document and type a lower cash L, I get l, which is correct and OK, but when I type into notepad or a text document I get a upside down reverse Capitol L that I can't exactly reprint here or even copy here. Anyone have the same problem or any Idea what is going on here?

I get the same. Must be the font being used in Notepad

Same here, never noticed it because I usually use Wordpad or Word.

Thanks all. whs, how did you get that to print? I couldn't. Maybe I shouldn't have indicated accepted answer as I am wondering if there is a fix.

You need to take a screenshot using Snipping Tool in Windows, Fastone Capture or similar, then upload to Photobucket or other hosting service.
After that select IMG code, copy then paste into your post here.

I just solved the problem. Open Notepad > go to Format button > Font > selected "Times New Roman" > OK > problem solved.

Thanks whs. I use Notepad all the time and I didn't like that font. Especially the lower case L.
