Does anybody know why?

I tried putting up the Fry's Cabinet post 4 times. In the previews it was perfect but when submitted the system kept adding all the Microsoft rubbish.

Is it my end? Anybody else had this problem? Any solutions?

Cheers
Mike

 Thats an unusual  format cabinet, the carved lettering normally runs along the bottom plinth of the cabinet, this one says chocolate with Frys to either side at top, also no front etched glass & the pediment seems narrower

Tried that.
The Microsoft stuff doesn't appear in the preview/ edit window so there is nothing to edit. It only appears after the post is submitted and is on the forum.
Technology is a wonderful thing!

As an aside.
My uncle used to live in Keynsham. From his house you could see the huge Somerdale sign on the railway embankment by the Fry's factory.
When I was there once, when I had acquired the cabinet back in the 1980's, I was chatting to some one who was involved with Fry's and I mentioned the cabinet and in the course of the chat that followed he mentioned the earlier cabinets had more woodwork carving and etching and no etched glass but cutting costs meant cutting down on the woodwork and carving and etched glass was a lot cheaper.

I agree with Cherryboy . The etched lettering on the timber has always been on the bottom on  any of these I have seen . .

The pediment looks a bit out of sorts. I have wall and counter versions and this one looks like its had some re-working. What's its history? Where was it pre-1980s? Still a nice looking cabinet though and great for a tin or chocolate bar collection. I'd certainly want milk glass and etched glass if I was buying at top dollar.
What price for a stunning complete wall mounted Fry's cab these days I wonder?
