[Mailman-Users] HTML in list descriptions

Ralf loaned me his listinfo code and it was plain to see that during an
upgrade the process parsed the listinfo html and modified the
non-standard html statements. It's made the following
modifications (which are easily reversed):
"<" == "<"
">" == ">"
It turned them into logical "greater than" and logical "less than".
Thus the html tags are missing and are now text.
I cut/pasted the code into an editor and did two replace all's then
cut/pasted the code back into the listinfo edit page. Everything worked
fine after that.
This is exactly what I was saying last week (but apparently not very
well....) HTML code works fine in Mailman version 2.1.4. It's the
upgrade process that converts the "<" and ">" characters to a text
representation. You have to edit the old code to move it back to its
original status as HTML tags.
Example: <H2> was converted to <H2>
Hope that is helpful!
