The curious case of the dissapearing Romanian I
Medium has an article named "The curious case of the disappearing Polnish S" - https://medium.com/medium-eng/the-curious-case-of-disappearing-polish-s-fa398313d4df
The article is all about Windows interpreting AltGr as Ctrl+Alt and medium.com was treating Ctrl+S from AltGr+S.
Yahoo does the same with the Romanian Î character which is generated using the Romanian Programmers Keyboard using AltGr+I.
Yahoo sees Ctrl+I from the combination Ctrl+Alt+I generated by AltGr+I and sets the Italic flag in the text editor.
Medium.com has an easy fix for this, check if the right alt was pressed. If it was ... it's not Ctrl+I!
Please fix this problem Yahoo.

+Cristian Adam, problems with Polish character sets has also been fixed as for this morning.
As of 2015-03-27 I was not able to reproduce the bug.
Thank you for fixing this!
As we can see from this Firebug screen shot when Ctrl key is pressed the presence of Alt key is totally ignored :(
As a workaround one could use the combination AltGr + 3 to generate the dead key ^ and then press I to have in the end Î.
AltGr + 3 was meant to generate the french ô, but it helps for î too!
Polish users have the same AltGr problem as one can see here:
GMail also sets the Italic flag on Ctrl+I, but they don't have the problem with AltGr+I, I can type î easily on GMail.
