    OK. I see it. There does appear to be a space before the period in that sentence. It's luck of the draw where the line break lands, depending on the browser. In Chrome it happens to land right there, but in FF and IE8, it does not -- although the extra space is still shown.

    Did you happen to copy/paste from Word or some other source? That can add a bunch of extra junk that can cause issues. I also see a bunch of   scattered throughout, which is just code for a space, but seems strange to see this in the body of continuous chunk of text.

    A couple of things to try...

    For a quick attempt at a fix: Highlight and delete the text a few characters before and after where this happens, and re-type it in manually.

    For a more complete fix: Cut all of the text from this page in your NOF project and paste it into Notepad. Edit out any extra spaces in Notepad, then copy/paste from Notepad back into your NOF project.

    Without seeing the code, I'd have no idea what's up in your case.

    That's a non-breaking space (&nbsp), usable where you want more than one
    space in a row. Browsers will typically only show one space, no matter how
    many you type in a row, so this gives you the ability to have multple
    consecutive spaces with HTML.

    Better: Cut the whole para/page whatever, and paste back "without
    formattiing". That will get rid of any formatting brought along from another
    source. In fact, that's the only way one should paste data from another
    program or web page.

    I'll give those a try & report back. No, I did not copy paste from Word or any other program. I compose my articles directly in NetObjects.

    Weird. I looked in the Code view and there was no &nbsp in the code. Deleting a few words did not help. Finally, I tried what the first respondant suggested and resized the text box slightly. That cleared up the problem. Now no space appears before the period. No new wraps appeared after the resize.

    When I run into this problem, I resize the text box just slight amount when the punctuation overflows to the next line. This usually solves the problem for me. IMO, NetObects should fix this problem that has plagued NOF since Version 3.

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to post a note that this has been submitted as a bug and that the current workaround is the resize steps listed above.
