HTML does not stick...

HTML does not stick...

I am trying to copy/paste html into the html screen, but it doesn't stick, it changes to its own settings and the images get deleted. I have the <ul> tag in the page with a style attached to it, so I don't want that in the cmd code as I don't want the client to be able to change the style. See attachment. The 3rd view is what I paste into the html window, and it changes to the 1st view so what I end up with is an empty bulleted list, shown in the 2nd view.

I have just upgraded to 1.1.9 and have also upgraded to DW CC2014, but that upgrade shouldn't have anything to do with it, as it happens online, not in DW. Working on iMac version 10.9.3

Oh, never mind, i see the problem. Your a tags are empty:

<li><a href="path/image.jpg" title="a title"></a></li>

you need to have some link text between the a tags:

<li><a href="path/image.jpg" title="a title">Click Me</a></li>

The problem is that your code is not valid HTML.

Yo dont have any text between the a tags which is why CKEditor is removing it from the code.

you have see the same thing happen using the CKEditor Demo:
http://ckeditor.com/demo

if you add text between the a tags, for example:
<a href="images/Panos/banff.jpg" title="banff"></a>

to:
<a href="images/Panos/banff.jpg" title="banff">Click Here</a>

CKEdittor will not remove them.

Also, CKeditor will not allow you to add li tags with out adding the ul tags also, it forces valid HTML markup.
