weird Italics...

I have recently submitted 3 chapters of a story where a girl is communicating with her blackmailer via a text box window on her computer. I am writing the blackmailer in italics. I have submitted all 3 via MS Word documents, where the italics is on one line, return, her reply is on the next line. However, in chapters 2 and 3 the italics ended up on the same line...? Any ideas how to fix/avoid this?

We'd need a sample of what you submitted to be able to tell if you formatted incorrectly. They showed up correctly in the preview copy?

Chapters 2 & 3 are using <em> rather than the <i> tag used in Chapter 1.

My guess is that the text processor is handling the two tags differently, replacing your carriage return with a space instead. A space shows up between the end punctuation of each line and the </em> tag.

Did you perhaps upgrade Word or change any settings between finalizing Chapter 1 and starting Chapter 2?

Hmm...chapter 1 was edited by someone different than 2&3. I'll have to check the versions. Usually I write in text only and put in the <i> stuff, but there were too many this time.

When you submit a word doc, you don't get a preview.

Okay, I checked, as far as I can tell I used the same versions for all 3 submissions. Definitely no updates, it's not even connected the internet. Curiouser and curiouser
