I'm trying to create a post on a WP 3.8 blog using the text editor that includes a
<html>. For some reason when I save a draft of the post, WP is adding
</html> to the end of the code block right before the
</pre>, right in the text editor.
I have the Crayon syntax highlighter installed, but it shouldn't come into play while I'm editing the post. It's almost like WP sees an open
<html> tag and is proactively trying to close it. I also tried escaping the angle brackets but the preview of the post showed the actual
>. I even tried putting the
<html> string inside a
<code> block inside the
<pre>, but the extra
</html> was still added.
Any idea why this is happening?
