Input Boxes Rendering?

Fellow monks, could you try going to Perl Monks Discussion and seeing if the following renders as actual input boxes?

<input $1> <input $2>

Because that is what is happening for me when I view this node via SoPW, as well as this node via PMD. (Posted at the request of tye&nbsp;.)

Update: Also happening for me when viewing SoPW as anonymous. Edited the title to remove "in SoPW" since it's happening in PMD too.

Update 2: Relevant HTML source of PMD:

<tr class="post-body post_body"> <td colspan="2"> <ul><p>Fellow monks, could you try going to <a href="?node_id=1040">Pe +rl Monks Discussion</a> and seeing if the following renders as actual + input boxes?</p> <input> <input> <p>Because that is what is happening ...</p></input></input></ul> </td> </tr>

    I approved the node and I can confirm seeing two actual input boxes in PMD.
    ($q=q:Sq=~/;[c](.)(.)/;chr(-||-|5+lengthSq)`"S|oS2"`map{chr |+ord }map{substrSq`S_+|`|}3E|-|`7**2-3:)=~y+S|`+$1,++print+eval$q,q,a,

      Thanks! I am seeing them now when viewing PMD as anonymous as well. I should have mentioned earlier that I am currently using Firefox on Linux, although the issue is not so much whether the boxes show up in the browser, but what's going on with the PerlMonks HTML filtering. When I view the node directly, the HTML source is:

      &lt;input $1> &lt;input $2>

    Wow - I wouldn't have imagined that our section overviews render (and escape) nodes differently than the nodes themselves do. Thank you for persistently following up on this and coming up with detailed instructions.

    I just looked into the code but couldn't identify the crucial part.

    I'll try to look into it again after GPW.

    but some casual testing showed that already <input> without $1 is causing the problem, while something like <textarea> seems safe.


    My guess is that <input> used to be an accepted tag in the beginning and was later excluded, but somehow one whitelist was forgotten.

    Weird. I saw it before voting on it, but after voting, i just see the angle bracets with input $1 and $2. And i still see the brackets when going back one page in the browser! FF54/Ubuntu

    Also, both here and in SoPW, textboxes show on the topics page, but going to the individual node's page shows the brackets.
