It was due to composing that reply in Word. Please people, think of the poor HTML! Don't abuse it by using Word
Yeah that must have been it because it's all cool now.
I do some stuff in Word but I'll keep it format free by pasting into notepad before copying into the reply box.
Perhaps providing a "Paste Special" command that could paste in unformated text into the reply box would help. Or just filter out any non ascii 128 codes. I think that's how the reply box used to be. Now you have to worry about differences in selected fonts and sizes and even then if you post something here (forums.galciv2.com) it may look entirely different if the same reply is viewde from another site.
If just ascii text is entered then you get the automatic formating for each site which is different from site to site but is at least always legible.
