Hmmmm I found another odd thing with the editor...

Take this bit of HTML
<img src="">
<div style="background: #ddd url(; width:64px; height:64px;"></div>
and paste it into the forum editor. If you switch from HTML mode to Design mode and back (or just save the post and view it) you'll see the problem.

It doesn't touch the URL inside the <img> tag, but it messes up the URL of the background definition inside the <div> - it makes the "M" in Mottie lowercase and thus breaks the link. It does this very consistently, but it won't do it if you are using the plain text/BBCode editor.

I don't mean to be a pain, but this issue is really starting to bug me... I can't edit old posts without breaking image links. I tried using the plain text/BBCode editor, but it really messed up the page formatting (this was the page I was updating).

So, today I ended up making a new photobucket page with "motty1" in lowercase to solve this issue, then I found I had to rename all the files that have caps in them as well.. ugh, this day is not starting out well... I'm going back to bed LOL.

Hi folks,

Looks like the latest update from the editor vendor does fix the problem with spaces being stripped out (among about 10+ other problems).  I'm going to be installing the update and testing in development, and it'll go live Monday assuming it doesn't break more than it fixes.
Aaron Lewis,

Hi, I haven't seen this that much, although I have seen it.

What's been happening to me is that Bullet Lists doesn't show any bullets - sometimes, I get the indentation, but no bullets. I've checked the html and it looks good.

Edit: Hmm, can't get it to reproduce here...
