It converted the less than and greater than signs you typed in your post into & lt; and & gt;, respectively. If you are using the “visual rich editor”, then yes, it will do that. You can click the HTML button in that editor to directly edit the HTML of your post, or you can use the editor as it was intended, by typing just the text and applying the formatting using the buttons at the top of the editor.

Didn’t work. I’ve switched character coding to ISO 8859-1. Now I need to switch WP coding to ISO 8859, but I am really not sure as to how that’s done. I know it involves Option-Reading and a text field currently containing “UTF-8”, but I won’t proceed without -clear- instructions. (Call me excessively cautious, I just don’t feel like screwing up my blog.)
