Is the Plus sign special in web layouts?

I've got an odd problem, with a teacher report card layout. Works fine when accessed via FMP, but when they access the same layout via the Web interface, any grade with a plus at the end (M+, E+) gets the plus sign deleted when the record is saved.

e.g., a teacher can enter a student's grades via the web interface as

E

M+

M-

E+

S+

and when the record is committed, the values become

E

M

M-

E

S

-- the minus signs stay; just the plus signs disappear. And any grades previously entered via FMP which have plusses on them get "downgraded" to just the lettergrade w/o a plus.

Each grade field is its own field, not a field with repetition

The values are entered from a drop-down list.

The fields are text fields, with no validation.

No script is performed for data validation that I can tell (DB was designed by someone else, of course....).

Knocking my head against the wall here-- any suggestions?

Someone told me that this is a "known issue" with FMP. The issue is with drop-down lists and web interface; to keep from losing the plusses, they need to be at the end of the list. So the drop-down lists, which originally looked like:

E+

E

E-

M+

M

M-

NA

Now looks like:

E

M

NA

E+

E-

M+

M-

--and things work just fine (knock wood).

Hope this saves someone else some grief.
