forward to a friend tag behaving strangley


I have a standard footer in my emails that uses the <forwardtoafriend> tag around my custom text.   Last week I tested an email and it was displaying normally but now when I preview my campaign the following text appears as well "forward this email to a friend". 

The code I used is a s follows:


<forwardtoafriend style="text-decoration:none; color:#ffffff;">&nbsp;SHARE WITH A FRIEND</forwardtoafriend >

This is how it appeared last week:

And this is how it appears now:

Can anyway explain why this is happening?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Emily, you wouldn't believe it, but the space in your closing </forwardtoafriend > tag is confusing the app into adding the default text. Simply remove this space (ie. </forwardtoafriend>) and it will fix itself.

On my end, I'll note this down as a bug, as it seems like a very likely thing to happen! Thanks Emily, sorry about that glitch, but really appreciate you bringing it to our attention.
