I had the same problem!  I hate how the HTML is mangled:

Anyway, hope your project generates a plugin to solve this problem once and
for all.

Subject: [wp-hackers] TinyMCE stripping name tag out of PRE elements

Good evening list,

Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, as I am new to this list this
week but interested in contributing to WordPress.  I'd like to start my
contribution by addressing the issues that have effected me during the
creation and set up of my blog using WordPress.  I have had a look round the
developer documentation on the WordPress site and I did not see a how to get
started guide so I thought I would start with a suggested change.

What is the procedure for submitting changes to the TinyMCE editor?
I'm a fan of the google syntax highlighter library
(http://code.google.com/p/syntaxhighlighter/) and use it on my blog but I've
noticed that TinyMCE is stripping the name tag out of the PRE elements that
are used to identify the code for the highlighter library.  After a bit of
searching around the internet I came across the following suggested fix,
which involves editing the Tags TinyMCE is stripping:
I'd like to know if this sort of fix would be considered acceptable thing to
resolve (it does not have to be the solution used in the
article) to roll into the main code base or not?
