Ouch ... now how many articles with <pre> in them are incorrectly being displayed for the print versions?? :( I was not aware of this. All those articles we went through and fixed up, were not checked for this. What a job that'll be to fix. Is there anything you (anyone) can do code-wise to search and replace this? I really do not want to go through all the articles again. Geeze, there are still a couple small (insignificant) categories that aren't done the first round of cleaning. Exactly what characters within <pre> need to be escaped? Are there others besides the < and > ? This needs to be highlighted on Admin for ALL article reviewers/approvers to be made aware of.
