C3PO  the first one was   in hotmail appreciate that might  be part of the prob but why was yours shrunk copied from here  tags not involved there so can't blame that. Also    the copied text from the email is perfect  pasted in notepad so many people/systems etc leaves the only common factor this site

I don't think there is any point in getting upset about it. As Martin says, the Forum software is a bit outdated and reacts differently to various text inputs generated in more modern browsers. There is nothing to be done about it except to find a combination that works for you. I use Firefox on my PC and that works OK generally although it doesn't deal with text in quotations quite the  way it should. As stated in an earlier post, composing your post in Microsoft Word and then doing a copy and paste into the Forum posting box seems to work most of the time - for me anyway.

Sometimes things can't be fixed and you just need to find a workaround. C'est la vie!

    One thing I have found is that if I want to copy and paste onto the site I first paste it into Notebook  then call up format:font/size and make sure it is in 10 Point , then copy this and paste it into the reply box. This gives me a workaround for the issue.

I wish I had that level of discipline.  And the memory to do it before the event.
