If there are any encoded HTML entities in a comment, such as >, <, etc, these are evaluated and converted into their original characters in the Quick Edit view. For example, if a commenter enters:
This will appear as:
Under 'Quick Edit'. This means that a subsequent save will store the original unescaped characters.

Two in-use plugins that may be relevant: Markdown for Wordpress, and Peter's Literal Comments.
