Font size problem ... Please help

When a member copy a text in the forum and paste it in different post it appears like that:

SIZE=4]و اللى بيعتنق دين فده بيكون لأن الله سبحانه و تعالى شرح صدره لهذا الدين.


How can I get rid of the size tags (marked in red color) appearing?

Thank you for advise

Since that doesn't happen here, then I can only assume it is someone on your site. Can we get a link to your site and test account and also a link to a test thread we may test this out in.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Thanks a lot Lynne. It really happens with many members not with a particular one when they do copy text from a post and paste it on a different post reply. It doesn't happen when they quote properly.

Here is an example page:

Many thanks for advise.

You have this at the beginning of all your posts:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So if somebody goes to copy/paste the text, it is going to have that font size added in there.

That is true ... but why the size tag only appears when someone copies and pasted the text? ... As far as I remember, I have implemented an add on long time ago to avoid new members typing in very small default font size ... Should I stop this add on to sort out the problem? ... and is there an alternative to set the default font values for all members? ... Many thanks

You can try disabling your add-on and then see if the problem gets fixed.

This is not valid html and could be your problem:

I am very grateful to you Lynne ... I have added the missing tag <font size="4"> in my postbit_legacy template ... I hope this will fix the problem ... It doesn't change the errors in the older posts but I'll monitor the new posts to see if the problem is sorted out permanently ... My thanks again

I was only quoting part of the line to say that the size was invalid (which is why I linked to the page about it). The full line was:
<font size="4" face="Times New Roman">

But x4 is not valid.

Thanks Lynne, I had another look on http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_font_size.asp

Is line like that is OK, and do you expect it to fix my size tag problem:

<p align="center"><font size="4" face="arial">$post[message]</font></p>

size="4" is valid. I will recommend though that you move to CSS instead since <font> is actually deprecated.

Deprecated tags in HTML 4.0 -

It sounds after 24 hours monitoring of new posts that the problem is sorted out after adding the missing size tags and removal of x letter as you recommended ... Thank you very much indeed ... I am not familiar with CSS technology and happy with my old <font> method
