    In the Rich Text editor, with NewLineMode="Br", if you add multiple lines of text with formatting toggled oddly across those lines :


    Question mark characters get inserted when the formatting is removed in an order different than added.  Example:

    If you enter a single line with formatting as follows:

    plain bold italicbold italic

    (italicbold meaning both are turned on - so you can see that we did bold on, <text>, italic on <text>, bold off <text>, italic off <text>
    This renders fine.

    But with MULTIPLE lines such as:

    plain
    bold
    italicbold
    italic
    plain

    What you GET is :

    plain
    bold
    italicbold
    ?italic
    plain

    The stored HTML for this ends up looking like:
    <P>plain <STRONG>bold <EM>italicbold </EM></STRONG><EM>italic </EM>plain<BR><BR>plain<BR><STRONG>bold<BR><EM>italicbold<BR>?</EM></STRONG><EM>italic<BR></EM>plain</P>

    You can see the ? being inserted after the <BR> tag after "italicbold"

    Skin settings:
    <nt:RichEdit runat="server" SkinId="SimpleText" Width="700px" Height="240px"
        EditModes="Design"  EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" Skin="Ciena" EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet="true" ContentFilters="RemoveScripts"
        StripFormattingOptions="Css,MSWordRemoveAll" ExternalDialogsPath="~/EditorDialogs" NewLineMode="Br"
        EnableAjaxSkinRendering="true" ToolsFile="~/App_Data/RadEdit/SimpleTools.xml">
    </nt:RichEdit>

    Is there some setting I need to change to fix this?  Or is this a bug in the control?
