Just tried to post some code in a new there (http://csscreator.com/node/23381) and it came out all messed up as if the page was actually parsing the HTML. I enclosed it in code tags as suggested and even changed all the <'s and >'s to < and >. Sorry to screw it up, but I did everything I could to post it correctly and I'm a bit stumped as to how to fix it...
I have seen this before, and I think it's almost definitely to do with the opening and closing of the code tags.
And you definitely want to enclose the open/close code tags in normal '<' and '>', not the proper ways of drawing them you are doing

Hmm... Can't seem to find an edit link. Is editing disabled?
I definitely used the literal <code> tag, not the <code> version though.
Edit is there! Scroll to the bottom of your own code. That also means it's definitely to do with the code tag not being closed properly. If you can't find it, perhaps use your browsers 'find' command to locate the edit link?
You didn't close the tag! I

This forum has been so quiet today, that I actually got excited about the 'broken forum' and the 'search for the fix'.

Oops, noticed the edit link
Oops, noticed the edit link for the original topic post is located above the topic. Sorry about that. I think I fixed it... Thanks for the help.

Ugh... It appears to actually be breaking when I post the CSS code, not the HTML part. Is there something I should know about posting CSS? I enclosed it in the code tags but it's still breaking everything...

Purus your stuck between a rock and a hard place now.
You can't ad the closing code tag as it then renders the entities as written, you will either have to leave the close tag off or remove all the entities.
And now I am getting the
And now I am getting the following error when I try to edit it:

Should I just make a new post and start over? Am I missing something here or is it always this hard to post code?

No it isn't that hard to post code!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please leave it I'll adjust things.
Thanks. I appreciate all
Thanks. I appreciate all your help. I was just doing some testing with submitting a new post and it appears that if I take the exact same code and retype it into the submit field (as opposed to copy/paste from Dreamweaver) it works fine. Perhaps the tabs that the copy/paste includes is throwing things off?
