In My Recent Comments, one of the long comments was truncated in the middle of an < i>italicized section< /i>. Consequently, the italics weren't closed for the rest of My Recent Comments.>>

What HTML tags are allowed on the three main Metafilter sections? (I dare not experiment for obvious reasons.)

You can now leave tags open wily nily on MetaTalk (coming soon to MetaFilter).
This is a test to make sure unclosed tags get closed. Of course it will work.
(I purposefully left the bold and italics tags open on this post

Can we ban the use of the <font> tag? Or at least run a test to make sure if someone opens an HTML tag they have to close it? If I have to read one more shrunken thread
I'm going to scream.

Just happened to look at the MeFi source and realized that it contains no fewer than ten
META tags, all identical expiration directives with a date in 1990. Is this some kind of workaround for a weird browser bug with expiring pages from its cache? If so I'm mildly curious to hear which browser needs ten copies of the tag to take the hint. ;)

I realize I'm probably the last person on the web to have noticed this program, but HTML Tidy
is pretty cool. It's an open source utility for cleaning up HTML: closing mismatched tags, etc. It seems that Haughey currently has to go in at times and close tags that posters leave open. I wonder if filtering entries through a program like this could save him from that chore. I'm sure this isn't the only utility of its type; does anyone know of others?
