[rt-users] Tracking a bug with WYSIWYG editor and IE7

A-ha!  That's a reasonable theory... I've got a signature on my account; my other users... not so much. ;)

FWIW, I also have the problem occur on IE6.

As you suggested, I removed my signature from my Preferences, and the problem went away.  Now, how does this help us solve the problem?  If it were Firefox, I'd use Chris Pederick's wonderful Web Developer add-on (http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/) to pick it apart... anyone recommend a similar tool for IE7?

Thanks,
Mike
