Me again ;)

The editor is doing something weird if I use the editor droppdown menu to style something it adds weird thing like

<h5>my tiltle<br /></h5>

Any idea ?

I find the editor a little funny on how it generates HTML. If you selected a line of copy that already exists in the editor and style it with the drop down I can see it including existing line breaks in the selection. I usually find I have to clean up the HTML of any content in the editor box, especially when cutting pasting from Word. The editor tries to maintain some of the styling.

You shouldn't copy/paste directly from word. Use the "Paste from Word" or "Paste as plain-text" buttons.

Create personalised, annotated, customised maps using Google Maps.
Your maps can contain the following:
* Placemarks
* Lines
* Shapes
Once you have created a map, you can:
* Add descriptive text, including rich text and HTML
* Embed photos and videos in your map
* Share your maps with others
You can do this without using any payday loans.
