Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

OK, managed to edit the line breaks.

nah, nah, nah! <attempts rocking bow, falls over>

I expect it's tribext's Translate function's line break management that can't find a space anywhere in the long line of codes, and so puts a break in the middle of a code.

For you, the hassle is to check that out in the editing window before posting. Make sure the line breaks happen after a semi-colon so no odd numerals are carried over to the next line. Lines should begin with an ampersand. So if you see

............................&#35
340;&#26548;......................

place the cursor at the end of the first line and use Delete (or at the beginning of the second line and use Backspace), so the code joins up again:

............................&#35340;&#26548;........

Interestingly, this solution does not seem to work on DailyKos: the bad line-breaks just keep getting reinserted when the diary is re-published -- even though everything looks fine in preview mode.  Whatever:  my main concern was figuring out how to get simplified Chinese characters working on ET, and even if it's a bit of work, at least we have a solution.  Thanks very much.

Spurious line breaks?
