Posting text and embedded font instructions.
Good day. I use Firefox exclusively as my browser. I have a MacBook Air, with all updates in place.
I post to a university blog. Lately, the posted text is accompanied at the end with a long list of font instructions. These instructions do not show up in the copy, no matter which word processing program they're created on. (The text comes from various authors. I copy and paste.)
It's not a huge problem to solve--highlight and delete. Still, puzzling and annoying.
Today I tried a test posting of my own text (Word), using Firefox, and then using Safari.
The font instructions appeared using Firefox, and did not appear using Safari. I have to conclude that it's a Firefox artifact. Wrong? Right? You tell me, please.
Is there some instruction or direction or place to check a box that will make the font instructions not magically attach to my copy?
The font instructions do not appear when I post the same copy on Facebook, nor when I copy and paste any other document anywhere. For instance, they do not appear when I post photos to accompany text.
I would appreciate any light you can shed on this.
Most kind thanks.

Your issue is a bit confusing for me / us.
But it seems that maybe the updated texts you are entering onto a blog is not showing up.
What i think may be the cause is the cache not clearing out. But this is only a thought.
Is it possible to see that updated page on a different computer?
If your modifications to the page appear on a different computer, but not on yours then i would lean towards this issue being a cache related one.
Let us know!
