(BTW: you DO need a better font here: this form is highly unusable on an iPad)

As for the problem, I've ran into an issue copying some text from a QuickGuide and 1st I though it was the guide to be blamed but then did some more tests and found out that it's Textastic's fault. I pasted the exact same clipboard contents to several different apps and transferred all those to my PC and the only text to exhibit problems was the one pasted in Textastic. Basically, I was pasting a short html snippet and after much digging I found that textastic was adding a 0xC2 char before SOME of the spaces. These would not show on Textastic but they would be stored on the file and break html rendering. I can send you some screenshots of this if you wish.

Just to clarify, his bug happens just by pasting: if I preview the file in Textastic it will immediately exhibit the bugged behaviour! I only transferred the file to my PC to better debug it so it was not a transfer problem. (Textastic doesn't have an hex view, does it?)

Entering text using Siri fails.

After text is entered using Siri Textastc changes it or removes parts of it.

Version 2.0 app crashes immediately on pressing WebDAV button on an IPad while the IPad is connected via 3G wireless rather than WIFI.
Fixed for Textastic 2.1.

We really could use a new app icon; more inline with iOS 7... Other than that, great app!

Unsure of whether it is even possible, but I host a lot of sites using S-Drivescould this be added?

Would be great have a lot of examples in every language because for example in c++ we have different programs with different syntaxis

Ich wünsche mir Intellisense für die gängigen Sprachen,, so muss ich nicht immer zwischen der Referenz und Textastic hin- und herwechseln.
