Bug (minor, so far)

    I recently entered the following string of text in a message:

    ...S&P500;is... 

    EDIT: dang! There it does it even in (code)!!!!

    and the forum would post

    ...S&P500;is... 

    (note the semicolon).

    No amount of editing the post would get rid of the semicolon until I put a blank space between “S&P” and “500”.

    I think the forum engine interprets the ampersand followed by four characters as a special HTML numeric or entity reference. This may cause problems at some point.
