Anyone notice that abbreviations and accronyms are not formatted right?

    On my computer abbreviations are coming thru as the computer commands like it says the actual command with the symbols and then the full word and then the command on the other side. Is that happening to others?

    When I tried editing that post, the commands showed up. <acronym title="Problem Child">difficult child</acronym> <acronym title="Dear Husband">husband</acronym> <acronym title="Autism Spectrum Disorder">Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)</acronym> going advanced now

    yup, they changed. difficult child husband Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

    Looks like it happens when you switch your method of reply. once I was in advanced they abbreviations stayed correctly.

    Yup. Been happening to mine. Not noticed a pattern though. Sometimes it does it, sometimes not.

    If you see it when you are writing your post, you can delete all the formatting ans it should go back to normal.

    Annoying, but not a serious problem :)
