Canadian Club ads -- formatting issue

I have no idea who is responsible for this, but somebody ought to fix it.

Most of the answer to the question is run together with the question, and it's all in italics.

I don't think the problem is on his end, because I'm getting the same problem on 2 different computers using three different browsers.

I'm on a Mac, and I see it. Looks like someone pasted the answer in twice. Should this be over in ATMB, however?

For the record, I'm seeing the issue, too, with this set-up:

Mac OS Sierra version 10.12.6
Firefox version 58.0.2

Yeah, it's not a browser issue. The HTML formatting has the answer formatted like/with the question (ital, indent), then it's duplicated as a real answer.

Aw, dang.

When we went to this new format, not all the old columns pulled over as they should have.

I've been fixing all kinds of stuff. Thanks for the heads up.

Okay, fixed. Found the old illustration, too. Sorry for the trouble.

You know, some of those old cases of whiskey are still out there ... http://wackulus.com/like-whiskey-try...old-challenge/
