Why is this happening when I expand the text? I used Illustrator a couple of days ago, and everything was functioning normally then.

I figured it out. Bounding box was hidden. (View - bounding box).

That does not look like an unusual number of anchor points for expaned text.

What were you expecting the anchor points to be like?

This is just a matter of which selection tool you are using. 

Here is the exact same bit of expanded text - with the Selection Tool and with the Direct Selection Tool.

The anchors are there, but only the Direct Selection shows you the anchors.

I got the anchor points with whatever selection tool I was using, and never the box around the text. But as I wrote above I had turned off bounding box. It worked perfectly when I turned that on again.
