Hi Luo:

I think I found something that's related, I've been running some of my webpages through Validator...

hidden link

… and it showed a lot of closing </p> tags that didn't correspond to any opening tags. And when I was finding pages that were having the issue mentioned above, I'd see the markup was wrong: the closing </p> tags would re-arrange, moving outside of a </div> and that would make sense of why things looked bad. I tried to find you an example, but right now my site is momentarily behaving — I'm sure it'll occur again.

But still, if you look at the source code in Firefox it'll highlight in red some extra </p> tags that don't relate to an opening tag. See attached pic, or look at this in Firefox: view-source:hidden link

Is this being caused by Layouts? I had a look in my functions.php file to make sure there was nothing there that might be doing it. And I had turned off all my plugins and switched themes before and this problem was there. The only consistent thing was that Layouts was active.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers, Russell

OK great, thanks. I think it's happening across other sites where I use Layouts and insert an image, for example, on this page:

hidden link

Extra </p> tags are in the code. Screengrab attached. Anyhow, I'll wait to hear from you.

Kind regards, Russell
