From our fearless leader Vicki...
One valuable lesson I learned years ago that I feel is worth sharing: when blooging or adding text online, never work directly online. It's too often fraught with probs as Dee has encountered.
Best to create your text in a word doc (or text doc), then cut and paste into the online space.
Another good habit for online text is to create plain text, no formatting. You can always choose edit/clear all formatting to check. Then cut and paste.
