Hi Barry, welcome to the forums.
For future reference, there are many sources for text, including email, and many of them have their own hidden formatting. Our forums are WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). In other words, you don't want to copy then paste any weird formatting into your forum.
One of the best ways to avoid that is to copy the text from the source you are using into the Notepad program on your Windows computer. (If you are using a Mac this doesn't apply). Then, highlight and copy the text from Notepad, and paste it into your message or article in your forum. Notepad removes any weird formatting and leaves clean text to paste into your forum.
