Permalink Options page needs to 'HTML entitise' the displayed htaccess rules in the textarea element.
|Reported by:||JeremyVisser||Owned by:||anonymous|
In /wp-admin/options-permalink.php, when your .htaccess file isn't writable by the server, WordPress will display a textbox for you to copy-and-paste the permalink rules from.
The rules contain the lines "<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>" and "</IfModule>" which must be encoded with HTML entities if it is to be well-formed XHTML. Encoding with wp_specialchars() does the trick.
