Cleanup on aisle 31410: formatting gone awry February 25, 2004 2:11 PM   Subscribe

Y2Karl's post appears to have messed up its layout. Looks like the html fixer-upper munged up some already buggy html y2karl fed it:

Argh, and I fell for the taking character entities on preview but not on post thing. Still, I shouldn't be able to make the "posted by" line in the CODE style, should I? I call another bug. Anyway, what resulted from y2karl's posting was:
<a href="href="
1393045200&en=12916664a78ee03a&ei=5007&partner=USERLAND" title=" first link 
permalink>. </a>

And why the hell is MeFi inserting <BR>'s inside <PRE>'s, making it seem double-linespaced? Ok, I take it all back, I'd like to postemptively turn my post into "Matt! It's broken! Please hope us!", and vow never to post html to MeFi again.
