What the Hell is Wrong with WordPress

Just a quick one. Spent more time tryng to fomat that last frigging post than actually taking the screen shots and writing the bastard thing!

What is going on with word press when it insists on inserting multiple strong tags?

I may not be a brain surgeon, but I am not a muppet, at least I like to think so. So what the freak is going on when I try and post the following in WP using the html editor (ignore the *):

<*strong>Image 4<*/strong>
I end up with this

<*strong> <*/strong><*strong><*strong>Image 4<*/strong><*/strong>
