I had already posted earlier a problem I was having with the contact notepad having bluish squiggly underlines and right clicking suggesting I change the style to Normal.
Now I found out why some have it and not others.
The note pad is fine until I run Activities and then when I go back to the General contact record, there are the squiggly lines.

Far more bizarre than I originally thought.

So now I have done tests and if I copy and paste the entire contents into Word and then take that from Word and put it back into the notepad it stays put. Even if I click on Activities it stays fixed.

So that answers my mystery of why they seem OK and then suddenly change. I thought I was just not good at keeping track of which ones had the issue and which didn't.
And it doesn't seem to matter if the Activities search ends up with results or no results. Happens either way.
And happens whether the contact has an email address in the address field or not. Happens either way.

OK, found my answer. It started also happening in emails I got from others, like a company. Answer at this link.
