Reply to "API Error?"

Hi willow,

eBay has some pretty strong filtering for illegal javascript that will sometimes reject things that are harmless. For example, in your listings which failed, the use of parentheses appears to be the cause. Below is rejected by eBay:

<font color="#f5f5dc" face="Arial" size="4">ONE FIREPLACE (PLUGS INTO LUNDBY DOLLHOUSE AND LIGHTS UP WITH A BULB LOCATED BEHIND THE LOGS)</font>


We've asked eBay about this before and their explanation is that the use of DHTML and other techniques can be used to obscure the actual script in the description, so they have to make things super strict to be thorough, but this is pretty frustrating. I suppose you'll need to revise the parts of your description that use parentheses and make sure it will post ok.

Hope this helps,

Joe
