    I even tend to prefer the old post editor (WP 2.0.x) where at least I could insert raw HTML and see the correct result.
    Now, HTML comments do not work as '--' is replaced by something like '&#nnn;' where nnn is a number that stand for a nicer way to print --. But heck! I wanted to close my HTML comment not display it. So, now the web browser does not encounter the html end of comment where it should be expected... But somewhere later in the skin template part...
    Some web site provides services that we can add to our blog. Those services can directly integrates within popular and commercial blog platform like typepad or blogspot, and they usually deliver HTML to copy and paste into not supported blog platform. Now, with the "code" tab, it does not work as expected most of the time...
    So, today I am using phpmyadmin to edit my post. And it is half satisfying because WP interpret even this code so I have some <p> hanging here and there :-( HTML is no more compliant (even though I had provided valid raw HTML...)

    Well, I might try the suggestion of suburntkamel now, but I hope a fix will come soon.

    PS: btw do you know where is it that we can fill in bugs for WP?

    I fully agree.

    On the other hand:

    Isn't this a little old fashioned and inefficient, having content and form so tightly bound together? Let us type XML - ok, XHTML will do - and give us an css editor that lets us customize the css part affecting the display of posts only. And give us post by post css editing, so that we can be in full controll of the structure (xhtml) and form (css) of each post. Oh well, that could be a feature request, but I'm too lazy to do it now. It's here just as a comment.

    Scripts belong to templates.

    I love the fact that I don't have to think about html most of the time, so wordpress does the basics very well.

    But I <b>DEFINITELY</b> agree that if I specifically change some of the HTML code under the code tab, it should stay changed.

    I agree with the original comment, entirely and enthusiastically.

    Agreed, 100%. Give me the rope and I'll hang myself with it, thank you very much.

    Ditto ditto ditto. This is particularly frustrating whilst trying to format images in pages.

    Add an extra 'x'

    Trust me when I edit XHTML.

    why don't you all just turn off the wysiwyg stuff from your profile page? I'd truly like to see html in things like category descriptions and such, but it's easy to use html in posts by unchecking the wysiwyg option at the top of your profile page.
