Seemingly without warning the above HTML commands appear when they are keyed while the caps lock is on. The mystery is that it's not all the time; it was happening last week but now it is fine.
I can only assume there is a command sequence on the keyboard that turns this feature on/off but I don't know what it is and a great deal of searching has come up empty. It is my great hope that someone here knows or this or - even better - a manual for this keyboard beyond the four pages that came with it.
