    I can't reproduce the "Blockquotes galore" test article from http://themes.wordpress.net/testrun/. I enter the following code of a new article:

    With some blockquotes too of course…
    <blockquote>Lorem ipsum.</blockquote>
    And a suggestion by Steve Cooley for a blockquote within a blockquote:
    <blockquote>Lorem ipsum dolor.
    <blockquote>This is a blockquote within a blockquote</blockquote>
    Nulla in tellus eget odio sagittis blandit.</blockquote>
    Maecenas at nisl.

    and press "save and continue editing"; then WP changes my text to

    With some blockquotes too of course…
    <blockquote>Lorem ipsum.</blockquote>
    And a suggestion by Steve Cooley for a blockquote within a blockquote:
    <blockquote>Lorem ipsum dolor.</blockquote>
    <blockquote>This is a blockquote within a blockquote</blockquote>
    Nulla in tellus eget odio sagittis blandit.
    Maecenas at nisl.

    Note a </blockquote> that has been moved from the end of the quotation into its middle. I tested on a fresh WP 2.2 installatin, default theme, no plugins.

    you're doing something wrong, I JUST pasted your code straight into a fresh install with the default theme, and it came out exactly as expected:

    dont use the 'visual' editor use that 'code' tab.

    Hmm... but I did use that 'code' tab in a freshly upgraded (from a freshly installed 2.1.3) WP 2.2, with the default theme and no contributed plugins.

    Options -> Writing -> Formatting:
    UNcheck "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically"
    Hope it works for ya.
