about box html translated to entities

I just tried to update the "About yourself" box on my user profile and found that the HTML I include was 'decomposed' (don't know what the proper term is) ... basically, the HTML was translated to text and the html brackets were converted to entities.

  • Severity changed from normal to enhancement

In other words, we don't allow HTML in the profile pages.

  • Severity changed from enhancement to normal

It used to be allowed. All the profiles on my site currently have HTML in the profiles but now, when they are edited, they are screwed up.

If the HTML isn't going to be allowed in the profile, then update the edit function to strip html from the profile before saving it.

It might be good to check if the user that's editing the about box has unfiltered_html or so on. But that might get complicated.
