[wp-hackers] Code Tag Driving me Nuts!!

I figured it out, sorry for the bother.

It turns out that all 8 code-rendering plugins I had installed were somehow borked in one of the more recent builds.

My code tag was

<code lang="html">&lt;html&gt;&lt;head&gt;<br />&hellip;<br />&lt;link rel="Stylesheet" href="http://neosmart.net/dynamicCSS.php" type="text/css" media="Screen" /&gt;&lt;/head&gt;.</code>

As an example. Everything within is encoding - i.e. removing the code tag displays it *exactly* as it should.

Instead, it would show this in a "code box" (as my CSS defined it) in the post:
&lt;html&gt;&lt;head&gt;<br />&hellip;<br />&lt;link rel="Stylesheet" href="http://neosmart.net/dynamicCSS.php" type="text/css" media="Screen" /&gt;&lt;/head&gt;.

It was encoding the already encoded HTML.

The broken plugin(s) would go haywire with the presence of the "lang" tag within the code tag. That's what they required in 2.0, but for some reason 2.1 broke it.

Not exactly a bug, not exactly problem with WP - just drove me nuts is all :)

(removing the lang="html" bit fixed it).
