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:

The webite designer should put an instruction in the webpage headers to force IE into compatibility mode to  save each and every one of us having to do this and not having to waste time finding out!
