Format overwritten

No, I cannot give access to the pages.

Here is what happens

when I initially apply formatting and go to Source it looks fine:

<p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: Comic Sans MS;"><em><span style="color: rgb(255, 0, 0);"><strong>test</strong></span></em></span></span></p>

If I then Update the record, then go to Update again and click source, it looks like this:

<p><span style=""><span sans="" comic="" style=""><em><span style=""><strong>test</strong></span></em></span></span></p>

It is doing the same thing to my images and URL's. First time is fine, subsequent edits get messed up.

This has always been a problem with my iRite, in PHP MySQL or Access and ASP. I always assumed it was an Access thing so I just did not offer the feature but now I would really like to make it work to offer a quality CMS.

Is it a collation issue? A character set issue?
