I've been tracking this one for a while, and finally caught the common theme today. If I enter a url in a post that's a top level site, like http://www.squrl.com/ and including the trailing /, which is proper syntax, the
</a> tag afterwards is deleted when I save the post. If I don't append the /, like http://www.squrl.com the entered html is saved exactly as entered.
This happens on my 1.5.1 and my 126.96.36.199 installation, in any number of themes, so I don't think its a css problem. Not only does the saved post show the link as running until it encounters the next
<a href> but when I go back in to edit, the
</a> has been removed from the text of the post.
Am I the only one encountering this?
