list-tags don't always work

by Skeeve (Parson)

I used a Descriptive-List tag in my last reply-post. It looked okay when previewing but awful later.

Why do <dl><dt></dt><dd></dd></dl> not work in replies?

    Skeeve,

    Poorly displayed definition lists suspect
    The end tag may be missing
    <dl> <dt>Poorly displayed definition lists suspect</dt> <dd>The end tag may be missing</dd> </dl>
    Update: Added html tags to illustrate

      That would have been easy.

      But see for yourself. Here is the code, directly pasted from my post

      /^"((?:[^"\\]|\\.)*)"$/$1/

      ^"
      matches your field's quotechar at the start of the field
      (...)
      will "remember" what was matched inside the quotes
      (?:...)*
      This will match anything in place of the ... and tells the parser that it may apear as often as possible. Even zero times
      [^"\\]
      will match any character but " and \
      |
      is an alternative. Either the left or the right part has to match
      \\.
      Will match any "escaped" character
      "$
      again your quotechar but now at the end
        Skeeve,
        That is a good catch. When I posted the comment it was to test your question. This behaviour is surprising. While replying to you, I can see that the definition list is displayed fine. This is really strange.
        Strange
        Definition list behaviour when viewed within replies.
