First: wow. What an incredible contribution. Awesome.
Second: I can't see the span tags you mention. I've used the "Get the article's HTML" button and also hit the edit button to see what the submission wizard is doing, but nothing is jumping out (or in my addled state I'm missing it and it's staring me in the face).
Do you see the span tags in the code PRE samples while editing, while previewing, or after you publish it?
So use the comment system at the bottom of the article to tell the author, not post it to the site admins here. He can then update it - the articles are written by people like you and I, not just site admins!

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

I'm not native english speaking. Which means that my english is far from perfect. A couple of years ago when I wrote articles you were very good at proof reading and fixing my grammar errors.
I used to wait for an edit and then check the diff to see which errors I've made and learn from them.
I've written three articles in a short time. And it doesn't seem like you proof read at all now. And that's sad imho. That was one of the best things with writing articles here. I could trust you to help me improve my articles (and let me learn thanks to that).
Please read articles more carefully before you publish them. Especially if someone writes "please proof read" in the editor comment box.
I think you have a strong grasp of spelling and grammar. I've gone ahead and finely combed these over, but I'd be happy to go more in depth with the proofreading of your articles if you'd like. Feel free to email me about any changes to your articles (now or later) and I'd be happy to go over the changes/additions I applied and why. Some of it is preference (I find commas in particular to be individual taste) but I'm happy to explore the "why" of all the changes if you would find that helpful.
I don't think either of those articles were actually "edited" - they were just "approved". And perhaps while approving, some quick HTML fixes may have been done.
In the old days, an article would show as unedited, and most editors would often make quick fixes and leave it unedited. They'd only mark it as edited once they did a full proof-read/editing on it. But with the new system, there's no such "unedited" status any more and this may be what's confusing.
I have this in my Rep. history: "16 May 2012 12:20 PM Newsletter opt-in (undo) Participant MailoutType Feedback -50". The only thing I changed yesterday was checking the box that allowed private emails to my messages. As far as I can see, I'm opted in to all the newsletters. So what gives?
Now the article is ready to be published. But when I uncheck the box "Work in progress", the article still keeps in "Composing" state after publishing it, rather than changing to "Pending" state.
What is wrong here? I know that the article submission wizard is still beta. But how to solve this problem now?
I tried with Safari Web-Browser on Mac as well as with Opera and Chrome on Windows. So it doesn't seem to be a browser issue.
In this response[^], on the C# forum, I selected the paragraphs that appear preceded by numbers (one at a time), and chose "indent."
No error thrown, but no indenting in final result.
I wonder if auto-line-wrap somehow comes into play here ?
"Humans are amphibians ... half spirit and half animal ... as spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time. This means that while their spirit can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imaginations are in continual change, for to be in time, means to change. Their nearest approach to constancy, therefore, is undulation: the repeated return to a level from which they repeatedly fall back, a series of troughs and peaks.” C.S. Lewis
I posted a new article on 05.13.2012 and my score was about 19500. Yesterday my score was about 20300. When I deleted the article my score becomes about 16500. So I don't know where these thousands of points are gone.
Is this a bug?
Also, I am facing an issue with some tips I've never posted. When I delete them, they appear as deleted but when I refresh the page they still be there. I can't delete them from my tips tab.
Thanks for letting us know about this. We'll dig into your reputation to take a closer look.
As for the tips, it could be you are attempting to delete tips that are in composing status, which I don't believe you can do. Would you like me to delete them for you? Are you looking to delete these?

What you're seeing is an issue with caching of old data. We've had a long, long project of updating the rep points to reflect changes in rep policies (modified limits, new ways to score points etc) and as a bonus this recalc will fix an issue whereby removal of some points was not being reflected in overall scores.
As part of a quick fix we made it that certain events will trigger a resync of points, and so that's what would have happened with you. The underlying points were correct, but your published total was more than it should have been.
