White space problem persists…

    Despite some very positive help from thesacredpath (Aug 19, 2008) I continue to find large areas of white space appearing in my blog (URL below) several days after posting.
    These spaces can be up to half a screen deep.
    I have just (daytime, Australia, 20 October) cut them out of the present entry page, as I frequently need to. There were a lot there.

    An additional problem someone may help on: “Enter” spaces in “plain text” are suddenly failing to take. Adding a >br/< (brackets backwards so this does not enter as script) in the “HTML” option works, but seem to have gone (although the space remains) when I go back later. Seems odd.

    Hi Roger, are you still pasting from a text editor?

    At the moment I don’t see any huge spaces, but as you’ve said you cut them out, it won’t be possible to see what is causing the problem.

    Cheers!

    “… are you still pasting from a text editor?” ~ Yes, Jennifer, MS Notepad. Odd how the page stays nice and even for a bit, then slabs of white space appear. I was hoping it was a known problem. I never did want to be unique…

    Can you assist on the need to write breaks into the html? This also has a strange aspect. After I script the break in, I then have to remove a space when I go back to plain text. Returning to the html I find the scripted break has been removed, but the break I need remains where I need it. Odd.

    Notepad has some unexpected errors. Try doing Pasting without Format or similar. I was rather shocked to find Notepad didn’t wipe everything out, but no. You might have to tweak the paste.

    “You might have to tweak the paste.” … Thanks, raincoaster; but it causes me to plead ignorance. The only format options I have in Notepad are wrap and font. What can I tweak? Is there another text editor you could advise which is wholly clean?

    Sure.

    Do your thing. Look at it. If it has extra spaces, delete them. Etc,

    Otherwise: I’ve heard that Wordpad will do the trick, if you set it to Post Plain Text.
