I don't understand why this is happening or how to fix it, it's everywhere, on almost all my pages and posts that contain text. So frustrating. For example =

Apparently other people have had similar issues:

Elsewhere I was advised to change the blockquote in style.css to: BLOCKQUOTE { margin: 0 0 1em 1em; padding: 1em 1em 0.5em; font-style: italic; quotes: none; clear: both; } But that hasn't helped at all. How to solve this problem??

Make sure excperts aren't turned ON for your single post pages. Also, check for errors due to missing HTML markup.

Where would I find that option, please? I'm looking around for it, but I'm a little lost...

As for errors, I'm seeing a lot of extra tags like </p> everywhere, but I didn't put them there. Break tags, too, are thick as bees. That probably explains why my banners are in a vertical row rather than two by two, side by side as originally meant.

do you use the wordpress wysiwyg editor? wordpress has a habit of adding br and p tags all over the place! try TINYMCE Advanced.

LOL, I guess that is what I'm using, it's the HTML side of their editor. Sometimes I just don't pay any attention to the visual side of it (WYSIWYG, I take for granted). I looked again at this page -

- where the block quotes are really mucked up. The visual editor doesn't show any probs at all. But when I view the page as online, then the problems are very obvious... It's just bizarre how sometimes we see all those break tags popping up out of nowhere, the slash P tags too. At this moment I'm downloading the Tinymce Advanced plugin :)
