HTML Code appearing instead of text

    Question

  • I have noticed for a while that when viewing a small minority of posts, much of the post is html code rather than text.

    I have observed this using FireFox, Chrome, and Edge browsers. Here is a screenshot from this thread.

    This was quoted in another person's response and only the text is shown in the quoted part.

  • The person posted using the Grammarly addon, which adds unsupported HTML. It does not matter what browser or addons the person reading the post is using.

    Edit: The post can be fixed (if you are a moderator that can edit other peoples posts) by removing all tags, that is, everything enclosed by the angle braces. But it is a pain.

  • A guess but we think the users have this browser add-on causing the unrecognized markup.

  • Did you look at previous posts before posting this? Is this post about the same thing as Garbage HTML in posts? Note that since this is a question you should mark a response as the answer. You have the option of designating posts as "Discussions" instead of "Questions". If a thread is about something for which marking a reply as an answer seems inappropriate then it should be a discussion.
