When I myself want to insert a < sign, I know to type in <. However, the average commenter does not know to do this and is completely baffled when the majority of his/her comment gets cut off after a less-than symbol.
Is there a plugin or a hack that I could implement to ensure that (at the very least) the rest of the comment after the less-than sign is not truncated. Commenters sometimes use it in ASCII faces and then have to retype their comment, which is a pain.
I tried the Preserve Code plugin, but it only seems to work if you are a logged in user. Random people still continue to have the same problem. Is there something in the kses.php file that I would need to change to allow everyone to use the less-than sign without losing most of their comment?
