I just installed the latest TWiki-4.2.4, Sat, 06 Dec 2008, build 17773, Plugin API version 1.2 on SLES10 and copied data files from my XP version of Twiki over. When I tried to edit any page using the default TinyMCE editor, I get the following lines instead of regular text:

where it should be:

Welcome to the Sandbox web

Does anyone know what the problem could be? (If I disable the TinyMCEPlugin by setting the flag, the raw editor is fine) But if I switch using the "hammer" or "html" icons, the text are still messed up (and additional markings are added each time) Is this a known issue? I could not find any other mentions of this anywhere.

I've got the problem solved. Turns out to be a dumb mistake on my part when copying over some old data from an older version Twiki, I replaced some of the newer files that Twiki had under the data and pub directories. After I replaced them new from the latest Twiki, everything is working now. Hope this helps some others - double check to make sure all your Twiki/plugin files are up to date and not replaced inadvertently.
