I my recent review, I put too images side-by-side and because I'm fancy, I did it with a flex box. It wasn't present in the preview when I submitted it, but on the site now, it wraps the children in an <font class="standard">. Not a big deal, but why is that happening and can I fix it? That font tag isn't there when I edit the review.

(Also, it's 2022 and I complete forgot that the font tag was ever a thing)

Are you using the tags to insert images? If so, they provide specific formatting to help the review perform better in search and on social media. So that might be where the tag is appearing from. It's just letting the site know to display the font with its default settings to avoid breaking things.

Edit: Oh, you're talking about the one at the start of the review. It's in the site source code, and there for the same basic reason. There also are some tags at the end to help for when people forget to close italic tags and such, which they do fairly frequently.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
