found one of the things that crashes mobile Safari on my iPod: certain HTML entities like those Japanese characters I used in yesterday's blog. but not the plus-or-minus sign. disassembling the binary and locating the bug would be a fun project. that's how I found and eventually fixed the LynxOS terminal driver in the 90s; that escape-sequence bug, running at kernel level, actually crashed the system.
