When I erase something in the "visual" tab the code from the "text" tab is getting erased too. When I write something in the visual tab it's appearing in the text tab. Somehow, they both got linked together and it's forcing me to have the same thing in each tab. What's going on?

Are you talking about the HTML tab? – Brian Fegter Oct 8 '12 at 15:53
Perhaps @Dan is talking about the WYSIWYG/HTML textarea for the post/page body? – hampusn Oct 8 '12 at 16:01
'When I erase something ...' - how are you doing this? – Michael Oct 8 '12 at 16:15

Download the plugin Preserved HTML Markup Editor. I use it on all my blogs, and it would probably address your problem as well, for it makes sure that WYSIWYG edits don't rearrange / remove spacing, etc, from your HTML tab.
