Ok, that sounds like that may be it. Good find, Cliff! I had never thought of it perhaps being a browser based problem, since I use Firefox and therefore don't get it!

Are you guys using another browser aside from Firefox and IE?

I use Chrome.  I turned off the WYSIWYG editor, so far the double spacing that ALWAYS appeared seems to have been resolved, time will tell on the 78% font bug.

Looks as though we should all thank Cliff for his research! That was a great find! Time will tell if it is completely resolved for you, but it sounds as though it will be!

Update.  I discovered that by turning off the WYSIWYG editor, you can't embed a link in text, you have to use the entire naked link in the post, or use an outside source to abbreviate it, such as TinyURL.

If I am interpreting your meaning correctly, it's not correct.  Constructing your link tags thusly...

Code: [Select]

...results in this:

Notice that the actual url is now inside the square brackets of the opening tag delimited from the url keyword by the equal sign.  You put your alternate text in between the opening and closing tag.  It's a bit more work, but I've never had any mess anything up.

Yes, but what I meant was the WYSIWYG would let you just highlight the text then click on the Insert Hyperlink button for the url and it would do that for you.
