Re: The Expressions Box is broken

Hi Abraham,

I thought the whole point of the expressions box was that we could copy in expressions using < and > without having to worry how it shows up in the browser and the e-mails.
But now, they just get added to the actual body of the node, wrapped in < code > tags.

The problem is that it's always broken somewhere, either I put in an HTML-entity, but then people can't copy paste the code from their email, or I put in an actual < symbol, with the chance that the browser will think it's the start of a tag, and omit the rest of the line of code.

I think the best way would be to allow HTML-tags in the message-body, but not in the code-box.
Store the code-box as a separate raw text-field, and HTML-encode it on displaying in the browser, but send it as raw data to the emails, since they're not HTML-mails.

Not sure if this is feasible in your databsestructure though.
