          What browser are you using, and from where are you copying the code.

           

          I'm using Chrome, and I have just copied this code from CFB:

           

          <cfquery name="q">

                    SELECT          col

                    FROM          table

          </cfquery>

           

           

          <cfset s = "">

           

           

          <cfloop query="q">

                    <cfscript>

                              s &= col;

                    </cfscript>

          </cfloop>

           

           

          <cfoutput>#s#</cfoutput>

           

          The forum text field messes with it a bit, but not too badly...

            I paste directly into the textarea without selecting any of the rich text features.

                It's because Jive SBS ® 4.5.6.3 forum software is rubbish, and I suspect Adobe havenot configured it properly either (judging by all the JS errors I get when trying to browse it with IE).

                 

                So the simplest solution is to not use IE.  These forums don't work properly with IE => don't use IE.  Simple.

                 

                But I have to say, why the hell are you using IE?  You're a web developer, yes?  How can your browser of choice be IE?  I don't mean from any sort of anti-Microsoft or anti-IE perspective (although the latter would be valid), but it's just not the tool for the job.

                  Regarding:

                  "But I have to say, why the hell are you using IE?  You're a web developer, yes?  How can your browser of choice be IE?  I don't mean from any sort of anti-Microsoft or anti-IE perspective (although the latter would be valid), but it's just not the tool for the job."

                   

                  I do intranet stuff for my employer and the only browser we support is IE.  Maybe the OP is in a similar situation.

                   

                  Also, I have no difficulties with this forum at work.
