Since I'm "Sheltering in Place", I've started documenting my collection by sets and categories.
Nothing fancy; just pictures and descriptions.

Here are a couple examples of what I'm doing.
From my world birth year category:


And from my Japanese Occupation of China set:


It's a slow process but I've got the time.

Hmmm, don't know why the second image won't show.
I tested it elsewhere and it is fine.
I think I may have a character in the file name that this site doesn't like.
Further testing is necessary.

Testing the renamed image:


Yep, that was the problem.
I had an apostrophe in the file name and this site doesn't like that.

Anyway you get to see the image now.

I fixed the original. Just use ASCII hex-replacement (%xx) when you have a special character running afoul of the parser.

That being said, looking good!

Thanks.
I understand but don't know how to do it.
With luck I can look at the code for that area and see what it looks like now.

Ah ha!
I see the %27.
I assume 27 is the ASCII code for an apostrophe.
I looked at the Character Map and I see the apostrophe as 0027.
Definitely have learned something which I'll probably forget if I need it later.
At my age the memory is fast losing its function.

It is why I have to take notes. Easiest thing for me is to send an email to myself.
