Cloze deletion doesn't seem to work here properly (as you can see in the screenshot attached) Any reason why, is there a context with the black frame? That element was imported traditionally with Ctrl+Alt+N.

Faulty cloze deletion

Answer

Cloze will often behave like this on complex HTML. Internet Explorer inconsistently counts HTML elements in various contexts (esp. if you do not have IE7 installed). In similar cases you will need to keep the clozed text simpler. E.g. use F6 to remove tables (which cause more element counting problems). In addition, this item looks WAY too complex for good learning.
