Problem with element widths

Apr 5, 2010 at 4:20 PM

Can someone please tell me why in IE when I manually put the following HTML into the editor the element with the width becomes re-sizable when you are not in HTML view anymore?

<span>Normal Text</span><br><br>
<span style="width: 30%">This text becomes re-sizable</span>

 

Ideally, I would like it to not have the resize thingy as it appears very ugly.
