Component:  General       |     Version:  2.5

 The WYSIWIG editor for WP 2.5 does not keep previous content "intact" upon
 editing a post, as promised:

 ''Friendlier visual post editor — I’m not sure how to articulate this
 improvement except to say “it doesn’t mess with your code anymore.” We’re
 now using version 3.0 of TinyMCE, which means better compatibility with
 Safari, and we’ve paid particular attention this release to its
 integration and interaction with complex HTML...''

 For example, the first post I tried to make and then edit after going from
 'HTML' to 'Visual' mode in the post editing window garbled the appearance
 of the post immediately after I hit 'SAVE'. What it did, specifically, was
 move different lines of text too close together/took out line breaks I had
 wanted, and reduced size of font on some lines with links.

 [The browser I am using is Mozilla Firefox]

 Thank you very much for any feedback you can provide me with to help
 correct this.
