80 charactors max error!!??

I just finished typing a new mithotyn tab and i cant make it past step 4 on the submission because it says not to exceed 80 charactors. So i reformatted the tab... I reformatted it so much that now i dont even exceed 70 charactors but the error still comes up. I cant figure it out! Whats wrong???

Try this: press Ctrl+A (select all), it will inverse the font colour in the editor window so that you will be able to see which line is longer than 80 chars.

Hmm, i tried it, just for the sake of trying it, but i still get the error. I assure you no line in the entire thing is any longer than this one:

|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

So i dont know whats causing the error. Isnt that ^ 70 charactors? Well thats the longest line i got ...

i just tried again, i think ive tried around 9 times. I pasted from the attachment too. Still the same problem. I dont know what is wrong if it worked for you. If there are any alternatives to get the tab through, let me know. I tabbed the song so i could play it, but i only typed it for Metaltabs...
I just wanted to add that Bestial warrior told me that when he was submitting his last tab he had to shorten every line to 60 charactors. So i dont know what thats about.

OK, try to copy/paste it from here:
Code:
Band: Mithotyn Album: In the sign of the ravens Song: Embraced by Frost Label: Hammerheart records Transcribed By: Trey Dixon Email: Moonlitdungeon@aol.com . - palm mute / - slide up to \ - slide down to ~ - vibrato h - hammer on b - Bend p - pull off Suffixes for bend t - tap f - full bend h - half bend ph - pinched harmonic q - quarter bend t - tap bend * - see comment ^ - Hold bend r release bend x - Stuccatto ~ - vibrato bend , - slight palm mute () - ghost note, sustained note " - tremolo note <> - Trill Tune both guitars down 1 full step (DGCFAD) I have all the riffs in order until they repeat, so you will just repeat when needed. For all the tremolo riffs I only have the note typed ONE time, so you will simply hear on the song for how long to pluck the notes. Same for MOST of the chords,you do the timing, its simple. I left some helpful notes to explain some parts of the song...

I guess this is Word that's causing problems, try to use notepad instead.

I modified the page where you see the error. Now all long lines are highlighted.

Problem solved!!! And what a great addition to the site. The highlighted lines made me realize what the problem was. You see, on Word when you type in two of these ( - ) it makes automatically makes them into _ , but in the middle like the small ones. Therefore, i would just add another, which was causing them to really be making ( --- ) instead of (--), which added too many charactors. But i couldnt see that because the take up the same amount of space somehow... -- _- .
Anyway, enough talk, problem solved. And now i will never have the same problem in the future. Thanks Nomad!!
