Please don't ruin people's HTML code (4 posts)

    I find it kind of pathetic that version after version of WordPress is released yet the developers seem to be unable to create an HTML editor that doesn't rewrite your code.

    My latest frustration, WordPress insists on changing this:

    <!-- something i'd like to comment out -->

    To this...

    <!-- something i'd like to comment out &#8211>

    (Which completely breaks the layout)

    Great job guys. You're giving Microsoft a run for it's money in the quality department. This is why I never recommend WordPress to any of my friends and I wouldn't even be using it myself unless it wasn't for work.

    If you are entering HTML (and the code you posted above is an HTML comment), you should be using the HTML tab.

    I did use the HTML tab.
