Yippie, yea, fireworks, cigars
That seems to have got it.
Here is what is happening. The text in the 3 product desc. areas were copy/pasted from a word doc and insterted using the paste as plain text tool in th editor. Trouble is that when you do that it inserts a character that appears as a blank space -- invisible. You can easily see the character when looking view source, but unless you do that it looks like it can broke it because the character insterted displays as a *. Crap.
But its fixed and I can move on.
Thank you! Great catch.
