Question Railing Posts

Is it unusual to carry the posts that are used for the footings thru the deck and use them as the main support for railings?

No, I wouldn't call it unusual. Among other things it gives a stronger support to the railings, benches, whatever.

Thanks for the reply. I'm planning on doing just that, but haven't heard anyone on this site talking about it. I'll have to make sure they're pretty evenly spaced out.

I'm the nut job whose framing out his own home built swimming pool. Over the weekend I got the inside posts in place for the pool area, and boy are 6x6x10's VERY heavy! This is going to stand for a long long time.
