Jen,

What Jim said is right about Groundspeak using HTML Tidy. 

As far as the spacing goes, the 2 tags of <br> and <p> will probably fix things 
up.

<br> means "break" or new line. <p> means "new paragraph" and will break the 
line and add a blank line. Both of these tags go at the end of the line and do 
not need a corresponding tag line </br> and </p> like most of the others.

  - Groundspeak has added HTML Tidy to the site. This is a tool to make sure 
that "bad" HTML isn't allowed on the site. It will eliminate code that isn't up 
to standards. When you edit a page it is running through the tool and trying to 
"fix" any HTML that is incorrect. The ampersand is correct as &amp;.  As far as 
the spacing goes if you edit the page and it doesn't look right let me know and 
I will look for the code that is messing up the spacing.

    I have encountered an odd problem.

    I went it to edit a cache page and my HTML code is really weird looking, 
not like I left it.

    I haven't made any changes because I am afraid to.  Currently the page 
looks ok, but when going into edit my spacing has changed majorly and amp; has 
showed up on the cache page for the & sign.

    Anybody having problems?

    I was going in to edit/add to the picnic page.

    This is a sample of a line I copied from there

    <p>We are planning on having 15 - 20 for you all to hunt. We plan
    on place about 4-5 for KIDS ONLY. Thundermonk, Cubs, &amp; Tim (of
    Tim, Pam, &amp; Molly) has offered to help with placing these.</p>


    Notice where it has changed things?  It in this paragraph the system added 
amp; after the & This is through out my html code for that page.

    Why would it automatically do this?  I do figure that amp means ampersand 
sign.  

    As mentioned the other concern is the spacing.  My sentences really look 
broken up.

    I am still fairly new to HTML (never knew any before geocaching)  I just 
don't know why the system would all of a sudden do this when it hadn't in the 
past.

    Please Advise,
    Jen
