My website text looks fine on my screen, but is a mess on other computer screens - all text seems to have lost formatting.

By any chance did you copy and paste the text on your pages from a Word document?

If you copy and paste directly from a program like MS Word the formatting of the text is very likely to break your page. The best way to avoid this is to first copy and paste into a program like Notepad (in the accessories folder of your computer) This will strip out any unwanted formatting and you can then safely paste into the text widget.

kershnee, that's what my son suggested, but I didn't think he knew what he was website saavy, so I ignored him - I probably need to pay better attention to what my kids tell me
