Not a programmer, so bear with me --

I was cleaning up a post I published about 11:00 AM on 12/11/2008, and this was after midnight (so by the blog clock was now 12/12/2008). I did some small edits (I work in HTML mode) and when I updated, I found what looked like an iframe window embedded in my post single page, truncating the remainder of the post and displaying in it what appeared to be the source code for the page. I reverted to a revision I did before midnight, and everything appeared fine. I tried editing again and this time the post code for the page duplicated about two-thirds of the way down the page, and displayed as such when saved. I reverted again, and it appears normal.

Not being a programmer, I wonder if this is due to editing a post the day after it was created.

The post was created in 2.6.5, and then edited in 2.7. I did edit prior to midnight in 2.7, and I did not notice any issues.

Website is Post in question is

I could not figure out how to attach a text file of the post HTML code of the revision where I first noticed the problem to this ticket. Whatever caused this issue appears to have duplicated the code HTML I wrote several times, truncating the code HTML and repeating after this line:

<p align="center"><strong>&bull;</strong></p> I'm breaking another one of my own rules again, but this one's worth it. The unnamed "help meet" ("help mate," as in <em>King James Bible</em>-speak) at <em><strong>An Help Meet - Articulate. Adamant. Archaic</strong></em> give us <a href="<textarea rows='15' cols='40' name='content' tabindex='2' id='content'><blockquote><img width="60" height="27" border="0" alt="Start:" src="" /><font style="font-size: 1pt; color: #ffffff">W</font>elcome to <strong>Gratitude Watch.</strong> <strong>Gratitude Watch</strong> is an eye on the internet for news, articles, videos, and other items, all focusing on the subject of gratitude. For more on my intent on these postings, see </strong><a href="">About Gratitude Watch.</a></strong>

I have no idea where the:

<textarea rows='15' cols='40' name='content' tabindex='2' id='content'>

part of this came from. It recurs several times through the body of post HTML, and then the post actually finishes the way I wrote it.

I have not attempted to duplicate the problem, so as farr as this non-programmer knows I admit it may be some kind of database corruption issue.

Any input would be appreciated.

I have rolled back to 2.6.5 and the problem persists. I wiped the record, still got issue. Not clear what this was, may have gotten past it at this point -- might have been something in my posting code that caused a hiccup in the WP code. Don't know.

Please disregard. Sorry for the trouble.
