( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Could someone please tell me why there is now a div tag wrapping my signature HTML?

I ask primarily because I _don't_ use my "signature" just for a signature. I use it to avoid having to type the standard bits of a node so I have all kinds of useful tags and stuff in there (view source on my nodes to see what I have hidden in there.) If this tag will at some point have an effect on the nodes presentation then it will effect all of my node, as it is blithely placed around the full content.

Not only that, but its inconsistently applied. For instance the text box I am typing into now does not have the tag added. However replies do.

Whatever the idea behind this is, I do wish it was communicated to the comunity and discussed before applying it. Then I would have had the opportunity to point the above out and suggest a possible solution (such as a special comment style tag that is transformed into the div if its there, otherewise wrapping as has been added in...)

Anyway, if the whole thing is harmless (then why do it at all?) then never mind me. :-)
