When editing content, if I make an unordered list, I get this code in html:

<li><span style="font-size: 11px;">text here

How can I get rid of this span? Better yet, how can I specify that lists created in the CMS have a custom class assigned, like <li class="myclass">?

I have the same problem, and I can't find out what's wrong...
Seems to be no answer here or on the tinymce forum :(

EDIT: I have the problem in Chrome (10), byt not in IE (8). The text "<li><span style="font-size: 11px;">...<span></li> is just added in Chrome and not in IE!

SOLVED: I don't know what was wrong, but when I installed SS again and copied mysite and themes everything worked.

Try adding this to your mysite/_config.php

	HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('convert_fonts_to_spans', false);

Aram: I tried that one too, because I found an old post about that, but nothing happened.
And I tried to copy the folders cms and sapphire manually from another installation, and that didn´t worked either. I had short of time, so when the new installation worked I left the problem.

Maybe Chrome just had some cache left, because I had no problem in IE.

Thanks /Johan
