    CSS is beautiful.

    If you've been using the HTML tab, stick with that tab. Don't return to the Visual Editor. It will remove or otherwise interfere with your markup.

    Although strictly speaking, it was originally intended for displaying code, you might want to try enclosing your poems in <pre></pre> tags. That should preserve your text formatting without the need for &nbsp;.

    Hi. I've searched the forums, and tried the above. My poems appear correctly in the preview and view post screens - but if I do an archive search or view by category the formatting is gone.

    Is there any easy way to do this - or should I just create .htm pages for my poems in word?
