When posting/replying on some forums/message boards When using Safari I often get a load of gobbledegook such as

see if you can listen <b><u><a href="http://web.me.com/karlwhite66/Standing_In_The_Shadows/Podcast/Podcast.html">&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;HERE&lt;&lt;&lt;&lt; </a></u></b>


this was supposed to say....

try and listen >>>HERE<<<< with the >>>HERE<<<< in bold and underlined with a link embedded.

Any ideas on how to rectify?

Are you really using the <> symbols?
The ones you should use are the [ and ].

I'm not using any symbols. I've highlighted the text and that is how it is coming out, instead of the highlighted text.

It would appear it is a problem with the RTE editor on the forum.

When I type in my text and smileys etc and then post the text comes out with the codes etc

such as

<b><u><a href="http://web.me.com/karlwhite66/Standing_In_The_Shadows/Podcast/Podcast.html">&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;HERE&lt;&lt;&lt;&lt; </a></u></b>

instead of

try and listen >>>HERE<<<< with the >>>HERE<<<< (in bold and underlined with a link embedded).
It only happens with Safari, no other browsers.

When I disable the RTE Editor it is ok but only basic text, no emoticons etc. When I enable it I get a load of nonsense.
