Italics Become Bold, Bold Becomes Upper Case (4 posts)

    Ever since upgrading to 2.1, I've noticed that my previous semantically coded tags for italic and bold are doing strange things. For example, 'em' results in bold text on screen and 'strong' becomes bold, all upper case.

    Weirder still, if I revert to non-semantic 'b' or 'i' the formatting holds for a period of time and then reverts to the original semantic tags (a neat feature if the semantic tags worked as they should).

    Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks very much.

    Got anything weird in your theme's CSS file with regards to that?

    No. Using the PlaintxtBlog 3.0, theme essentially 'out of the box'. The only CSS change is I've added the code below. The issue I'm reporting here, however, was present even before the CSS change.

    /*SLIDE SHOW PRO POSITION*/

    .flashmovie{
    float:left;
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    }

    Ahhh, I did find the following in the theme CSS:

    div.entry-content strong,div.comments ol.commentlist strong{text-transform:uppercase;}

    - and -

    div.entry-content em,div.comments ol.commentlist em{font-style:normal;font-weight:700;}

    Wonder why this is in here...
