Formatting bugs in Forum posts, please help.

Whilst I am keen on good communications tools for the community, I am sympathetic that others are not so keen.

Again, I am happy to be patient and have not really pushed this side, recently, other than destroying data.

However, there are issues and the forums do need a good workout, which i'm not suggesting should be immediate.

The following link is to a great post, that has met a great deal of resistance from the technology, which is a great shame for both the community and the OP.

Can someone have a quick look at this thread and see if they can sort it out a bit. I presume there are a number of MSO tags(MS Office) that are trashing the formatting(Maybe these could be stripped out in code or replaced onSave?)

Selecting the text in the latter posts on this thread, to read them, as they are currently white text on white BG. He is also having problems with the wiki, but i don't know how as they are by nature, very open. I will contact him privately to see if I can help him with this(this reminds me of another topic of a wiki use guide, but i'll get to that later, once i've had a better chance to assess the current reality of the wiki documentation) Helping this post, probably at a data level, is all this ticket is for, but hopefully resolving this will give insights into further required work and more tickets or general plan to address this area at some point, including the use of threaded threads! ;)
