getting <br type="_moz" /> and <p> tags in db

<br type="_moz" /br> tags in empty db fields

Eric -
still no progress with a fix.
BTW: i dont see a "source" button on the update page. not sure what you're referring to... ?

however, i have discovered that this seems to be a FIREFOX / FCKeditor issue. all works perfectly in Internet Explorer. however, i am a Firefox user, and I also don't want to dictate to my clients that they MUST use IE in order for the backend to work properly.

i have found information online here: 1150
unfortunately, the fix they propose is not working for me. i've tried it.

what's happening is this: i have several iRite text fields on the insert & update pages. (the mySQL db field type is "text"). some fields i am leaving blank when inserting my data. if using IE, i get nothing in my db (great). if using firefox, i get <br type="_moz" /br> (YUCK).

i have tried everything in the "FORMATTING" tab of the iRite wizard. if i have the "Use <br> for return" box checked, i get the above tag. however, if i DESELECT this box, i get "&#160;" inserted into the db.

i have even gone into the .js file and tried editing.
1. with the "Use <br> for return" box checked, this line reads: FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'br';

2. with the box UNCHECKED, the line is: FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'p';

3. i've tried removing both and just using this line:
FCKConfig.EnterMode = '';

i am at a loss. i know i could use IE, but would like a fix for Firefox.

thanks, Jean
