Character representation

Everything you see in chatmessages aren’t always exactly what is sent and recieved. Atleast not in a Neo-Modus DC hub. Everything is displayed as it’s sent in an ADC hub (this is because of ADC’s lack of usage of certain characters).

Characters such as ‘&’, ‘|’ and ‘$’ are used by the N(eo-)M(odus)DC protocol. Therefore, if you’d try to send/recieve these characters, they’d be interpreted as commands.

Instead, all ‘&’, ‘|’ and ‘$’ characters are sent (and interpreted) as their respectively HTML representation.

For instance, ‘&’ is sent (and interpreted) as “&”, ‘|’ as “|” and “$” as ‘$’.
