If you save the page to disk as a text file (File -> Save Page As -> Text Files) then it saves the following: |test test| The pipe characters should not be there as they are not in the original file.

Also happens with Minefield. Only happens when you use the [code] tag. See here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=3149681#3149681
As I noted in the above thread this is by design. Certain tags preserve some of the formatting as an important part of the content in the form of extra delimiters. For example: <b> (delimited with *), <em> (delimited with *), <u> (with _), and in this case <code> (delimited with pipe |).
