Create task from another list

I have a two part question relating to List A & B:


1) I created a workflow that will create a new task item in List B when a new item is created in List B - mapping a description (multiple lines of text) to a name (single line of text). In the test environment, it creates the item perfectly with the description matching the name. When I do it in the production environment, there is <div class="ExternalClassEBE167AC80AF4518BCA70D3A0566E875">DESCRIPTION<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start"></span><span id="ms-rterangecursor-end"></span></div>. Why would it do this here when in my sandbox SharePoint it doesn't?

2) Same workflow, I want to Start a Workflow in the List B when the new item from List A is created. I put a 5 min pause after the create list item action but the Start a Workflow action comes back with this error every time 'Cannot contact sire at the specified URL There is no Web named "/xxx/xxxxxx/xxxx".' This happens in both my sandbox and the production SharePoint where I have full control permissions. I tried adding certain trusted sites to my browser (e.g., * but that didn't seem to make any difference.


Any ideas?
