If {condition exp<b></b>ression is true} Then
    'run this code inside here as it is safe

We've tried and can't pinpoint the cause. It's something to do with the security features. :(

The "bug" (or feature, who knows) exists for every user-provided instance of "expression", code tags or not. It only becomes visible when the code tag causes the block to be rendered as text instead of HTML.

For instance, if you right-click my post and inspect element, you'll see that each instance of "expression" in my text is split by that same tag.

Also, if you search google for exp<b></b>ression you'll see other forums making the same complaint.

I have a bit of time on my hands, and I see this issue, and `B)/>` in code tags, and `;>` added after emoticons, are still here after a few years, so... Well, who do I have to shag to get my hands on the source files? :P/>
If it's something to do with security features (quite vague :P/>) - then it might be that $_POST is aggressively modified somewhere around the start of processing to spoil SQL injection and/or XSS, or maybe somewhere before passing text to SQL query, etc... I'd be interested to have a peek and search for that, if at all possible. At which point does it start to manifest? Or is $_POST at all points already botched?

This bug will be fixed in the DIC upgrade, which is presently being worked on. :)
