HTML italics added to comment make EVERYTHING italic. (7 posts)

    If someone adds italics to a comment, the rest of the page becomes italic.

    People are doing this kind of mark-up:

    <em>italic</em>

    When I view source, it's showing this instead - changing the first <em> to </em>, and removing the close-italics mark-up:

    </em>italic

    But when I try to edit the comment, the mark-up shows up correctly, as originally typed.

    I can't find any other stray code weirdness on the site.

    What could be going on here?

    Site url? Have you checked for a missing </em> in your post markup?

    "I can't find any other stray code weirdness on the site."

    Yes, that includes a stray </em>

    It only occurs on Single Post pages, of course - when comments are visible.

    Here's an example of such a page:

    You won't see an example of the phenomenon of course, since we're take italics out of the comments so as not to screw up the site.
