    the offending page excerpt has a lot of ‘non-breaking-space’ characters in the content; because two words joined by a ‘non-breaking-space’ are considered to be one word (although it looks like they have a space between them), they do (obviously) not get counted individually by the excerpt code.

    possibly edit your page content (using the html setting of the editor) and see if you can eliminate the &nbsp; characters – or rewrite the content.

    Thank you alchymyth!!!! That did the trick. I did not see those “&nbsp’s”

    On a side note…in learning WP/PHP, I have found these forum’s to be more valuable then Gold…dare I say Platinum….now, to the point…I have noticed that YOU contribute more to these forums than probably any other person and always with solid solutions. I can’t tell you how helpful you have been to me…this is the 2nd time you have helped me. In a matter of minutes you helped me with things that I have spend hours (literally many hours) trying to fix myself. I can see from reading other posts that you have helped dozen’s of others as well…and for that..I say a huge thank you…I really hope you know how appreciative I am…i’m sure others are as well.
