A common misconception many people have when using a wysiwyg editor is that it works like a wordprocessing application, in that altering styles will remove the prior styles that are applied.  In the case of most wysiwyg editors, this is true if you select the exact same area, however, if you miss a space at the end of a sentence that was styled, or similiar orphaned character, you’ll end up with extra styles which will cause many issues and problems on your final page.  The easiest way to avoid this issue is to select the area you want to change styles on, and use the strip formatting tool in Center Stage’s wysiwyg editor.  This can alleviate much of the frustration that arises from using a wysiwyg editor.  Another technique to fix a page, after it’s been edited many times, and it’s begning to become frustrating, is to simply strip all formatting from the page, and reformat using the built in tools.  If you end up with a section on a page which ends up in two different fonts, simply strip all the styles from that section and re-apply the desired text formatting.
