Text formatting in Album Info window

Tried to format the text in the Album Info window. I could insert paragraph/line feed with HTML tags, but no luck with changing the typeface to italics or bold. Are these formatting tags not enabled in the Album Info window?

Seems to be working for me if I just insert some simple HTML tags, like this:
This is <i>italic</i> text, and this is <b>bold</b> text.
Please show us exactly what you're doing.

This is what I do and how it looks in the local result window. Will it be different once I upload it to the web?

Hmmm... No problem for me - see screenshot.

We're going to need to see a live example.

Yes, a live example is needed. The italic/bold does NOT show in the local preview, but is seems ok after uploading to the web! Strange... the live example is to be found on http://www.mcss.se/uhrforum/

Thanks for your effort!

Very mysterious. I've tried everything I can think of, including using both integrated and external browser (Chrome, Edge, and Firefox), with and without the internal web server, and even using your text. The formatting works every time.

Also, in your screenshots, it looks as if the entire album info window is being shown in bold when you look at the local preview. I have no idea why that would be happening.

I'm stumped.

There are more mysterious things in the preview, the display font does not seem to be correctly shown. I chose Garamond at 125% and what it shows is obviously Helvetica.

It seems to be the same problem, in the live version on the web the display is correct, so it must be something wrong with the settings for the local preview, maybe only on my computer and browser (Safari for Mac). Nothing serious, it is only awkward having to upload the pages to see the actual results of font/typeface changes.

I just tried Mac/Safari, and still no problem.

When you upload the album, please include the latest version of the lifeboat.zip file. This contains album setting information. The lifeboat file currently on your server does not reflect the current content of the album, which makes debugging very difficult.

One other thing to try, just to make sure it isn't something strange about your browser - try Chrome and Firefox.

It sure is the browser (Safari 12.1.2), it looks correct in Chrome. Is there a setting that I can "force" the local preview to be opened in Chrome, although it is not my default browser?

Well, it's definitely not a settings problem. Using the updated settings from the latest lifeboat file, I get this - see screenshot.

The only other possibility is that somewhere in the album, there's an unmatched HTML tag, perhaps in a comment or title. But I've hunted through the lifeboat files, and can't find one.

So, try creating a test project with just a few images, and a few simple lines of "album info" text. Do italics and bold show up properly when previewing locally? If so, that means that the problem is buried somewhere in the large album, and it's going to be very difficult to find.
