Search/Replace Strange Behavior

I just had a strange behavior I wonder if anyone can explain.  I have  
a card with 3 fields containing many pages of narrative text.  They  
are extensively formatted with linked text, colors, etc.  I used the  
search and replace to change occurrences of two spaces (I learned to  
type long ago on manual typewriters and can't shake the habit) to  
only one space.   I just typed in two spaces in the find field, and  
one in the replace field.  I limited the find/replace function to  
field text.  I pressed replace, and all formatting was lost on all  
three fields.  Is this a bug, or a feature?  I certainly didn't  
expect it.
