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

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.
It's pretty minor, but an & in the post title turns into 'amp' in the url. example.
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 (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.
Hmph. I made a couple of paragraph elements with a background color to highlight colors in this green thread. [more inside]
My comments, how I love thee, let me count the bugs.
The My Recent Comments script seems to have a bug. [images & expl. inside]
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 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.
(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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
