<span lang="da"> <span> they just pop in there
They mess up the HTML in front page

I got the page set as english but still those span shows up and make it look like there is a spelling error and that is realy going on my nerves now. How can I change that, it often shows up in table.

Any chance you elaborate a bit? What exactly is FP doing that you don't want it to do?

thanks for the reply, here is the code:

<span lang="da">Find your posters from these</span>

Those span code just hop in the html code for no reason, I type a text and then I see that a red line is under the text because of bad spelling but it is ok, but then I see that those span just come in the text in the HTML page so the program thinks it is danish, but I have set the page for english.


P.s and it do get on my nerves.

by the way wassent it you with the biotech web site, please send a sticky with the domain.

I can't remember the reason for FP doing this but I know what you mean....

Any chance you use CSS?

I think if you use an external stylesheet FP resorts to using span classes for particular styles- there is -something- that you add/remove from a page that "makes" FP do this.

Maybe others know the core of the prob...I'll fiddle around with the program to see.

Sticky on the way.

I think it has to do with this sort of header
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-gb">

If it is different from the FP "default" this might cause FP to create span classes when you use the WYSIWYG interface

Nob no CSS and head is
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">

Take that line out of your code and see if it keeps doing it.

I've run into this. Grab the SP1 [office.microsoft.com] update and all will be back to normal.

However you will need to go back and edit the existing pages or redo them :(.

I will try that, thanks.
