Toby
Why not type in MS Word ("other word processors are available") and then Copy and Paste into Mayhem?
Just a thought.
Suit yourself.

Martin asked what browser I was using - light dawned and I have abandoned the evil genius of Seattle for Chrome  - I can type again!!! Hooray.

Browsers do tend to update themselves very quietly in the background, hoping you won't notice.  >:-o

Like DM, I use Microsoft Word to compose and spell check before copy / pasting into the reply box.
Gives more time to arrange my thoughts, and if the site 'loses' my post I have the word processor version as a backup.
