    I just finished a new hub, for which I spent a couple of hours taking and editing photos.  In the "source" field, I put my name, and "copyright 2010" using the "c-in-a-circle" copyright symbol (Alt+0169).  It appeared to be accepted, showed up in the field, and was not flagged as an "illegal or unacceptable" character when I hit 'save.'

    (I notice there are all kinds of refusals to save and flags and 'warning' messages that pop up all over HP on other things, from wrong characters in tags or 'already used' titles, and other "stuff."  Why not here?  If the symbol cannot be used, it should draw one of those messages, and not just be deleted.)

    Upon publishing the article, however, the copyright symbol is missing, and only my name and the year appear.  How do I make it clear these are my photos, not just ones I found and used.

    Must I go back and edit to spell out the full word, "copyright?"
    (If so--- then, "Grrrrr!")

      Try "©" instead (without the quotation marks).

    Just the fact that you know about alt+xyz puts you way ahead of most folks.

    My experience with HP has been that sometimes it “takes” and sometimes it doesn’t.

    Try it again with max computer memory available. Other than that, I have no ideas.

    Good luck.smile

    Put the mark on the photo itself?

      If that isn't the perfect solution, then I don't know what is.smile

      Oh..good idea.  I often re-use photos elsewhere, and did not think of that, as I sometimes don't want "stuff" over part of the picture.

      That's a super suggestion!  Thank you!
