We have identified an issue for users in Internet Explorer 8 and 9 versions when replying to forum threads, where typed text does not display in the rich text editor (though it is actually recorded and will show, albeit with all those spelling mistakes intact) when you save the post.

This can be resolved by switching to 'compatibility mode' in IE.  The instructions for doing so can be found here:

James - you would make life easier for your users if you add the following tag to each of your web pages:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

It forces compatibility mode in IE (so your users don't have to). Depending on how your site is set up, you may only need to add the tag in one place on your website.
