I found one annoying peculiarity editing posts with large amount of '<' and '>' signs in them. After I made a post I found a mistake in it and what was my amazement, when I found &lt; and &gt; became < and > and I had to fix them all It was slightly inconvinient...

The software gives me the option to turn off html tagging so that less-than and greater-than stuff will come through as is (instead of being interpretted as html). I chose to leave the html stuff on.
Do you think I should change it? I rather like using the html PRE tags. Maybe it is high time for me to upgrade this thing - the new version has a UBB CODE tag that does the PRE stuff for you.

Oh, no. I don't want html codes to be disabled as well, I like this <pre> tag and some other. The problem is that conversion between html text to editor's text is incorrect and changes &xxx; sequences to what they should represent. It is normal that poster should write &lt; instead of < but editing such posts can become a headache... May be this can just be fixed ?
