Highlighted

Code box shows text in reverse...

I gave a series of commands how to unregister a DLL, and to make it clear I used the 'Syntax Highlighting' | 'Plain' feature of the forum editor.  The text was clear and visible until I clicked the 'Post Message' button, then the text appeared ... well, somewhat garbled.  It appears as it shows only the first part of the text, but in reverse!

I did another post with just the commands, again in a Syntax Highlight code box; this time it appears correct.

Anyone else seen this...?

Any advice how to avoid this?

My HTML knowledge is probably more ancient than yours. I'm just passing along comments. I agree, it should be fixed in the CSS.

I see it in several browsers. The issue disappears if I force

http://wwwimages.adobe.com/www.adobe.com/adobeforums/lib/com.adobe/template/optimized/screen.optimized.css

not to load so it appears to be something the Adobe design team needs to

look at.

A similar - much simpler - case: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2948264#2948264

The 'and/or' between the list items displays correctly in the editor, but gets reversed as soon as I post the message.

It appears as if we have two separate, although similar issues here.

The first issue, with reversed characters inside code boxes, appears to be fixed - thank you!

The second issue, as reported in my previous post here, is not.

I have created a test topic that shows both issues: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/678821

Reported. Looks like it is an issue with the strong tag.

I think the web team identified the issue in the CSS files.

Is Jive formatting the lists there? Or are you hand-coding? They did point out that there is some malformed HTML there...

<ul>
    <strong>text here</strong>
    <li>Text here</li>
</ul>

The <strong> text should be within the <li>

The list was originally formatted by the forum editor, then modified with manually entered HTML.

The reason why I did it this way was that I did not want this text as a bulleted line, but just a plain line.  This is - to the best of my ancient knowledge - not "illegal" HTML; it works perfectly fine in a standard HTML document.

If you advise me not to use this particular HTML coding anymore, then I will certainly follow your advice.  But if it can be fixed in the CSS, then I would like to extent a hearty thank you to you and the web team.

Just checked the test topic http://forums.adobe.com/thread/678821 and it appears as if all issues with reverse text are now fixed.

Thanks again!

But your screen name still appears

on my screen reversed in more than one way...
