I noticed since getting the new version (CS6) of Dreamweaver, some of our text links are appearing really bold.
I assumed something had accidentally changed in the CSS but when I looked at the code, the CSS was the same (links are bold by default) but in the code of individual pages, an additional <strong> tag had been added around each text link. This is not happening to email links, though. Both my local copies and server copies of the files have not been updated/modified since the fall of 2011, and our CSS has not changed since December 2011, but these mysterious additional <strong> tags have suddenly appeared in the HTML pages out of nowehere.
We have a flat site with over 100 pages so this isn't something I have time to go through page-by-page to fix, nor would it have been something I could possibly have had time to go in and add page-by-page.
I can only attribute this unusual issue to being a glitch in the CS6 edition. Any explanations or ideas?
I realize that would be the logical answer, but based on the strange glitches that are occuring in the latest version and the fact that 1) the HTML and CSS files show their "modified" dates as being over 6 months ago, and 2) we have recent screenshots of the pages that clearly do not show the super bold text, I truly think this has something to do with Dreamweaver.
Any other ideas??
If it were DW doing things like that, it would have certainly been reported by at least one other person. I've not seen such a report on these forums (or on other forums), nor have I seen such a thing happen with those files within my personal operating experience.
Here is the problem though - to fix anything, you would need to describe a set of steps that would allow an engineer to recreate the problem. Can you do that?
Don't get me wrong - I'm not criticizing you or the seriousness of your issue. If this is happening, I'll lead the charge to fix it. But it seems to me based on the curiousity of your observations (with DW experience going back to DW2, and with participation on numerous prerelease groups within Adobe/Macromedia) that the likely involvement of DW here is small.
By the way, you can do a sitewide search to strip out <strong> tags that wrap anchors (this seems an uncommon enough construct to be useful as a unique identifier).
