HTML Thread is disturbing the rendering of the page

Created: 20 Oct 2010 | 1 comment

Dear Connect Admin,

I would like to draw your kind attention to the thread in OpenSource: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/unable-vote#comment-4677811

To help the asker with the issue I tested the Voting and attached my diagnostic test window information. The WYSIWYG editor showed the rendering fine whereas the post render page got it haywire.

Can  you help fix the issue pl?

Hi Deepak,

 

Most of this is intended behavior. The editor "simplifies" the html to make it streamlined and adhere to Connect's standards. For example, Connect does not allow for colored text or underlined text.

Also, the editor doesn't really like cut and paste from other applications. It "rearranges" already generated html. You can edit it by chooseing the plain text option.

In addition, there are a few additional minor bugs that are being worked on. But it isn't an easy fix.
