Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

For some reason Mozilla/Firebird (breaks in both) thinks this block of code
should all be in <!-- --> tags.

<!--QuoteBegin--trant+Jun 26 2003, 12:02 AM--></span><table border='0'
align='center' width='95%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='1'><tr><td><b>QUOTE</b>
(trant @ Jun 26 2003, 12:02 AM)</td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'><!--QuoteEBegin--> i
like the xpeee look <!--emo&:)--><img
src='http://lsr.the-dark-room.net/forum/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0'
style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo-->) <!--QuoteEnd-->
</td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'> <!--QuoteEEnd--><br> xp look?
<!--emo&;)--><img
src='http://lsr.the-dark-room.net/forum/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0'
style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif'><!--endemo-->  
<!--Signature--><br><br>--------------------<br><span class='signature'>That's

        </tr>
        <tr>
		   <td class='postfoot' align='left'><span class='desc'>IP: [ ---------- ]</span>

It happens everytime as you can see from the url.  If you take out the
<!--QuoteBegin comment it works fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Quoted a message on Invision board
2. Went to the message, found it like that
Actual Results:  
Mozilla comments out alot of code when it shouldn't.

Expected Results:  
Ended the comment at the --> tag.
