I see in your code that you are using the standard HTMLPlaceholder control for MCMS so I would suggest to check Microsoft's support about such problem. We've had our own RadEditorPlaceholderControl for MCMS, however this product was discontinued about 3 years ago and we don't support it for more than 2 years.
