Copy/Pasting Icon codes

It was just brought to my attention that copy/pasting the :iconplz: codes from the deviation descriptions, such as the ones found HERE, no longer works.

I've done a bit of testing and it seems to be a problem that only happens if you're using Chrome.
To make the :iconplz: codes show without becoming icons, we have to inject some HTML codes.
It seems that chrome copies the HTML code/formatting within the text instead of just the text as most other browsers do.

Luckily it's easy to work around!


1. Select the code and copy it (Ctrl C)

2. Rightclick where you wish to paste the code.

3. Select "Paste as Plain Text"

Hope this helps anyone out there who was struggling with this problem! :w00t:

I was so happy to find this, and it looks so easy.
But I have just tried it, and it does not work for me  (I use Chrome).

so when I want to give the code of a PLZ icon I still have to do something like that:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a PLZ icon!  :D (Big Grin)
So you can use it, even if you are not a PM ;-) (Wink)


                          :iconheart-fmr0:   


just type this code:            :*iconheart-fmr0*:         ( without the stars  "*"  )

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I know it is not very "elegant", 
but it is the only solution that works for me in Chrome nowadays, unfortunately.
