I've never understood why that breaks some forums but not others.  Seemed more common in earlier 2.0 versions.

It literally hasn't changed in any of those versions.

The reason it breaks is because it's raw HTML inserted into a form whereby depending on which field you did this to and how, rendering the form after might well end up pushing *part* of the code so you end up with half-tags with open-quotes which cause other parts of tags to break.

I`ve not broken or changed that, i just wondered where it was thats all, but all`s going well.

Cheers everyone for the replies.
