    Hmmm yes. @Gidster helped with that one and he's just left for Greece today. I'll take a look with the provider on that one.

    Wondered why I'd not seen his Dreadlocks around today...

    Yes, he's probably eating olives and by the beach somewhere. I've flagged this to our provider and will let you know of any fixes.
    Thanks for identifying the issue! @Pooh
    I assume it's certain characters in the copy causing such issue...

    Given it did this to ampersands, I'm gonna hazard a guess @VioletChepil and say that the "Promoted" box is simply rendering the stored HTML and not parsing it, so any encoded HTML entities could be effected.

    Nice! I do see that it occasionally makes re-appearances so will keep an eye out! No fix reported on the provider side but seems special characters are now parsing a lot better :)
