By default, Internet Explorer wraps the content inside a paragraph tag - this is the default root <p> tag. If this tag is missing the browser automatically adds it. We got many request however to change this behavior, because it was 'tricking" the validators to believe that there is content in the editor. Secondly it was spoiling the layout of page because the content loaded in the editor without the paragraph would be returned surrounded by a paragraph.
That's why we decided to change this by implementing the FixEnclosingP content filter
which removes this root paragraph. If you need this paragraph tag then just disable this filter using the DisableFilter
server method of RadEditor or the ContentFilters
After disabling this filter the wrapping P tag will be not stripped by RadEditor.
Please, note that if you have more than one paragraphs in the content area:
then the FixEnclosingP filter will not strip them.
