'invalid formatting' - 'undefined' - prevented adding a comment. what the heck does that mean and how do i fix it? Answered

i tried to add a comment just now and was not able to. I have added them in the past without a problem. I don't even know where to post this problem since it was a site issue, not a particular article issue.

Avoid using characters which are part of the text formatting except where they are used for text formatting.

The only time I got a message like that was when I was trying to type in a link and had spaces in it. When I changed it to underlines it worked. Did you have quotes or appostrophes in you comment? If you doubled them that might have been the problem since the software uses them as formatting control.
