#1533 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Wordpress deals incorrectly with the q tag with regard to subquotes

Reported by: Christiaan Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: low
Severity: minor Version: 2.0
Component: Administration Keywords: subquote quote quotemarks <q> tag
Focuses: Cc:


When using the <q> element for quotemarks there is a problem doing subquotes, "as in 'this is a' subquote."

Typically a subquote would be done like this: <q>as in <q>this is a</q> subquote.</q>

But Wordpress, presumably wanting to close what it thinks are open tags, saves it like this: <q>as in </q><q>this is</q> a subquote.

So you end up with this: "as in ""this is" a subquote.

Instead of this: "as in 'this is a' subquote."
