Latest stripping of italic tags: Using visual editor in Firefox, latest version, on Mac running OSX latest version.
This time I noticed it not only stripped the HTML italic tags (along with the space preceding the word), it threw in a /div at the end of what I had entered (I had moved away from Firefox to look at something in Chrome) and had added at the end a div, /div pair. I certainly did not enter those.
I'm baffled. Should I be using some other editor?
I fixed the post---once the damage is done, I don't see any point in preserving the result, but if I'm mistaken about that, let me know. The post starts with a photo, which I inserted with the Visual editor, if that's relevant.
This is mildly frustrating (scale of 1 to 10, probably around 3 or 4).
