The latest Composer module makes html errors when editing pages. These same
errors were NOT in 1.5 composer and down but gegan in 1.6 and now make composer
virtually unusable in many applications.  Please see for example:

For examples:
1) This page has banners at the top of the page (just ignore these).  Look at
the text at the bottom.  Note that some of the lines have MULTIPLE "bullets". 
The extra bullets appear when you add a new line of text with a horizontal line
2) After I edit and add a new entry line,  a SECOND FULL COPY of the entire text
section magically appears.  
3) Many extra characters including lots of <> appear in the edited versions when
the copy is displayed on other browsers such as Internet Explorer.  The extra
html must be manually edited out.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above

Actual Results:  
text displayed as described.

Expected Results:  
should have worked as in the past versions and be compatible with IE6.

dup of bug 251686? Bug 251686 is fixed in builds from July 22nd and later.
Can you try one of those?

I am now using a nightly build from July 31 2004 and it still has problems as
outlined before:
1) If in the sample file,  you try to ADD another "classified entry with a
"bullet" and a horizontal line as shown at http://gpsinformation.net/bannerroll.htm
then Composer adds extra CR/LF  and puts the bullet at the wrong place.  If I
"fiddle" with it for awhile, I can get things looking pretty good.  
2) As an exercise,  try and REMOVE the extra "bullets" Composer has added.
3) As another exercise, try and add ANOTHER line of text (in the middle of what
is there) and with a "bullet" which should automatically be generated by a CR
following the existing line.  

Fun!  I sure wish this could be fixed!

I think that the extra "internal" CR/LFs are no longer generted by every edit, 
but composer DOES generate extra CR/LFs in the output HTML.

Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ?

Serge, reporter no longer uses SM.
(I'm not sure whether the steps are detailed enough.
Anyway, I don't expect much Composer work to happen before bug 477840 is completed...)
