Hi Team,
Below sample code I am using, now when I run the application, I have entered some text and make it as "Bold" (select from toolbar) and click enter and write some more sentence, now, what ever I wrote those sentence I am seeing with dotted lines (see the attached image).
Note# "EditMode="Design"  please help me asap.
FYI, to replicate this issue use below sample code and, follow below steps.
when "EditMode="Design" first enter some sample text then make it bold that text -->click on enter-->enter some more text you will able to see dotted lines.
Goto "Preview" mode, you can able to see all the sentence which you entered in "Design" mode. 
If I remove "ContentAreaMode="Div" " property, it's working fine but I need this property.
