    My site seems to manage itself. It randomly decides the font and allignment. I have no idea what to do. http://posthastetaste.com

    Thanks for any help,

    Matt

    Looks fine in FF 1.5.
    IE doesn't.
    I use the K2 theme. It has an IE hack in the css that prevents this.
    I think you should probably talk to your theme's author.

    Do you use the WYSIWYG editor? That causes more trouble than it's worth, it seems. What happens sometimes is that it generates poor code in one post which then leads to problems when you stick more than one post on a page.

    So then what editor should I use?

    If you disable the "rich text" editor and use the plain text one instead, new posts won't be affected.

    Then you'll need to go back and edit old posts to remove the bad HTML.

    How do I disable the "rich text" editor?

    It should be in your profile, at the bottom of the page.

    Say, in looking at your blog source, I see a lot of font tags in your posts.

    example:
    <p><font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman">Go ahead and buy boxed salad mix. It’s not like your taste buds care. I’m seriously not behind you in the grocery store isle with a metal bat. You’d rather overpay for tasteless greens. It’s best that the greens only last a few days. Besides my biterness, I think it is interesting that most greens available at grocery stores are baby greens. It must be because baby foods are cute.</font></font></p>

    If you are cutting and pasting into the post editor from something like Word, that'll definitely hose things up. Any one of those tags doesn't get closed and it will cascade through the rest of the page. Also defeats the use of CSS for such things.

    So, if that's the case, you may wish to consider either composing the post directly in WP or adding an interim copy/paste to something like notepad (or any simple text editor) to strip off all that extra formatting before copying it to your post editor.
