Hi, I'm using DNN7.0.6 with DNNRadEditor. Under some combinations of  browser and OS I am getting unwanted span tags added to the HTML when creating ordered or unordered lists. The HTML created in certain conditions is this:

<li><span style="background-color: #f9f9f9;">bullet 1</span></li>
<li><span style="background-color: #f9f9f9;">bullet 2</span></li>
<li><span style="background-color: #f9f9f9;">bullet 3</span></li>

Each list item is created with a grey background for some inexplicable reason.

When editing in other brower/OS combinations, the li tags are created cleanly without any spurious span tags.

For me, this problem occurs with Chrome/Win8,Chrome XP but does NOT occur if using Chrome on Win7. My client is experiencing the problem with Firefox on Win7 and Win8 but for me Firefox is good on Win7 and Win8.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?...and if yes do you understand why?

Incidently CKEditor does not display this problem but there are reasons why I need to stick with DNNRadEditor.

Thanks for any insight/suggestions.

...Interestingly I've since found that this doesn't happen with DNN 7.0.4, so it looks to be affected by DNN Version.

Is it possible to uninstall DNNRaditor for 7.0.6 and install that for 7.0.4?

no, radeditor has a dependency on telerik.web.ui.dll -in 7.0.4 it was using version 2012.3.1205.40, in 7.0.6 it uses 2013.1.403.40 - I imagine the issue is a bug particular to that later version. The problem is that all telerik components use the same dll, so whilst you could drop the old dll in and change the web.config bindingredirect to target the older version that may cause problems elsewhere (I've no idea as it's not a tested configuration)
