OK, I log on to Total Choice, pick the file I want to edit, wait for it (the html editor) to load and start editing text in plain English. I believe the problem started when TC put the editor back online recently. Anyway, once I have edited the page, I click save. When I view the page online, the A characters are radomly placed throughout the page, no matter how many times I remove them, they return. I am not using FrontPage, I just tried that to test if the same problem would appear, which it did. thanks.
