Signature bug? (div not closed)

While reading 510570 I found that my custom style for the .pmsig CSS class is being applied to the whole thread, starting from the first pmsig div tag. I looked at the code and found this:
<div class="pmsig"><div class="pmsig-347753"> <font size="-2"> =oQDlNWYsBHI5JXZ2VGIulGIlJXYgQkUPxEIlhGdgY2bgMXZ5VGIlhGV </font> </p><p>
and the divs are never closed. From what I understand, those div tags should be added (and closed) automatically... does anyone know what's going on? I've looked at other recent threads and all the signature divs are closed properly.

    When I write a node, my signature pre-populates the text entry field. If I were to guess, the author of the node in question whacked the </div> tag accidentally.

      Oh, ok. I had never used signatures myself, so I was not aware that the div tags themselves were part of the editable part of the post. I thought they were added automatically. Thanks! :)
        Sure thing. Now, were I you, I'd /msg the author and let him know about the problem.

    I don't have this problem because I've gone to Display Settings and turned on "Enforce proper nesting of HTML".
