For some reason this system will not recognize double spacing for me. Watch. This sentence was written as the beginning of a second paragraph. As I type, it shows up as a separate paragraph from the first sentence but once I post, everything will run together. Again, a double space here...Is anyone else having this problem?

You wouldn't happen to be using the Safari browser, would you? I have that problem if I use Safari instead of Firefox. You can download Firefox free here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

I have no idea. R&R have said that the preferrred browser here is Firefox. I usually use it, but sometimes I forget and post something using Safari -- and I end up coming back with Firefox to fix the formatting.

Well, I don't have this problem with any other forum that I post to and it seems that PBS/R&R could sort it out if they wanted to. I think it's a conspiracy against Apple/Mac/Safari users!! **wink** ;)

Lots of sites don't get along with my Safari. Not other forum sites, but I get "The browser you are running does not blah blah blah." I also have firefox, but I don't really use it that much. Safari is handy dandy and has a cool compass icon. = )

It happens with Opera, too. You can get around it with some html, but it's easier to just use firefox when you are in the forums.

I am using firefox and I can bold, and italicize, and underline.

This is cool. I guess I will use firefox for PBS. And Nicole, the firefox icon has a cute little fox hugging the globe, at least I think it is the globe.
