I was having issues with the visual editor removing line breaks, so I followed the developer's advice on preventing this by disabling the visual editor in my profile.
However, after I do this any HTML in the [raw][/raw] tag in the HTML editor gets converted to HTML entities after save.
gets converted to:
[raw]& lt; br /& gt;[/raw]
[note: I added spaces to the HTML entities in this code to get them to display in the post]
Is this the expected behavior when the visual editor is disabled? Renabling the visual editor stops this behavior.
Also, note that checking any or all of the boxes in the Raw HTML plugin had no impact on this problem.
