This is crazy. Whenever the editor loads, extra spaces appear. Switching from Design to HTML then back to Design adds 1 more set of <p> tags:

</span></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<div class="content4">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" width="620">

If I delete them via the Design view or HTML they just come back. This is occuring a few different places in this page, and is occurring in others. Please help!!

Hi David,

You can experience this problem only if you edit non well formed HTML content and switch between the Html and Design modes of RadEditor or when submitting the content.

The Rich Text Editing engine of the browser that RadEditor's content area IFRAME uses, tries to validate the non well formed content and the <p> tags in it but without success and produces new non valid XHTML content.

This invalid XHTML content misleads the ConvertToXhtml content filter of RadEditor and the editor starts to produce extra paragraphs with every switch between Html and Design mode or when submitting the content. To stop this behavior you can disable the ConvertToXhtml filter by setting the ContentFilters property in the respective ConfigFile.xml and ListCoifgFile.xml files, which are located in the /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/ folder.
<property name="ContentFilters">RemoveScripts,MakeUrlsAbsolute,FixUlBoldItalic,FixEnclosingP,IECleanAnchors,MozEmStrong,ConvertFontToSpan,IndentHTMLContent</property>

The ConvertToXhtml filter should not be set as a value.

Another approach is to instruct your users to validate and correct the content before submitting it using the W3C validator dialog of RadEditor and manually correct it.

Thanks. As I was rewriting the page I noticed a lot of broken tags. I switched the paste method to strip the formatting which has helped a lot.
