I never thought post markup could "hork" the theme.

I was going to compare a well rendered page with source from broken, but 
this is a great test.
Sorry, I can see no such option. Is that in the post edit screen?
I've never before heard of this ... I just looked through every admin 
page ... thought it might be in Writing Settings ... can find it nowhere.

thanks / sorry / help?

(I'm going to use FileCompare to see if I can spot something.)

Good eye, Otto, it ferr shurr ain't. That 1 is horked, for sure, no 
doubt about it.

But that's 1 of 10 "horked up". So when you write "Your content is all 
horked up" I don't get it. I don't see it.
Sorry, but I just don't follow you.

But anyhow, you figure 1 mal-formed link would break the theme?
I must be missing your point here Otto.
I'm not being intentionally thick here, honest.
