HTML error? Using a "<" sign inside small tags seems to have done it. [more inside]

Odd Display Bug?

Anyone else see a weird display bug with this comment? In both IE and Firefox, the "posted by" line (and only the posted by line) for that comment (and only that comment) is not indented at all. I'm not familiar with the Metafilter code, but when I view source it looks like all the rest of the comments.

code stripping

It's pretty minor, but an & in the post title turns into 'amp' in the url. example.

No, I didn't mean to do that TWICE.

Weird number translation issues? Maybe? I don't know, but when I posted to the "Crazy Congressmen" thread I know that the second time I used this link: http://www.metafilter.com/58687/FlatEarthers-No-FixedEarthers because I pasted it IN the comment box and then did the HTML around it. But it BECAME a link to the thread that I was commenting in. What? Or maybe I am totally and completely insane.

Thread 52028 (Twin Peaks) broken

Thread 52028 (on Twin Peaks) is broken at the bottom--if I recall correctly, it's broken in the same way that the thread about the Ross sisters was broken a couple of days ago.

I thought this was fixed?

This comment has italicized everything beneath it on "My Comments." I thought this was fixed?

A malformed anchor tag breaks the preview page.

Posting with a malformed anchor tag makes a mess of the preview page, and comment text is gone when you hit Back to fix it. [more details inside]

I messed up some html with a single quote.

I inserted a single quote in a post on accident and the MeFi code that normally would be the rest of the page (i.e. all the buttons and such) showed up in my preview textbox.

Bold, Italic, and link tag buttons were missing

(Mozilla 1.1 WinXP) While I was able to post a comment to a FPP on MeFi the Bold, Italic, and link tag buttons were missing.

Bad link formed, fixed

Hey there - A post I made about a WA state Bill has had its link text munged - was this deliberate, or a bug? The original text said 'WA Lawmakers try to remove "repugnant" Theory of Evolution from schools'. It now just reads 'WA Lawmakers try to remove'. Just a curious thing - maybe quote-related. Thanks.

Broken html messing up the place.

It appears the code can be broken.

Bug in the search results.

Is it just me, or are the "Go to the detail view for this result" links on search results not scrolling to the anchor points?

Error with the MeFi scholarship link in Opera.

Opera5 shows the "MetaFilter college scholarship" as an off yellow link but it's not clickable. After a quick glance at the HTML it seems Opera doesn't like the negative value, "margin-top:-20px". It looks like there's an unclosed DIV tag around that area too, well, maybe.

Putting HTML tags in a post works in preview, but not in the actual post

I wanted an HTML tag to appear in my post, so I typed ampersand-lt-semicolon and ampersand-gt-semicolon for the karats. Looked fine in preview, but they got converted to karats -- and therefore invisible comments -- for the post.
