I'd noticed a couple of other posters mention it but didn't really know what they were talking about until just now: I tried to reply to a poster and copied their incorrect doctype into my reply, but all the forum would allow was:

<xml>
<DOCTYPE>
<html>

(didn't matter whether I used code or quote tags or nothing at all.) Anyone else having trouble posting code?

<DOCTYPE>

<DOCTYPE>

Shock

You're right!

/edit

Split because I think this is a really big issue.

&lt;!Doctype&gt; issues?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xml:lang="en"
      xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
      lang="en">
works on preview. Let's see if it posts.

Ahhah, I cracked it!

It's to do with the "Disable HTML" button. For some reason when you DON'T have it ticked, the forum truncates the code. If it IS ticked t comes out fine?

Very odd.

Could well be to do with the PHPbb update Tony installed the other day :?

@Tony: Does the new update set or reset any profile settings? Eg., use html tags?

cheers,
