My thanks to those who, cleverer than I, have suggested means
to probe the pointy-bracket problem, for example by writing as
This is a <i>yet another</i> <b>test</b>. <u>Please ignore</u>!
If, above, you see two incomplete sentences, then we know that
an anti-HTML code is lurking.
I've just discovered (1) that the above is correctly interpreted as
HTML in the first stage of processing, producing italicised, a
bolded and underlined words, and
(2) that an expression of the form
do not survive the first stage of processing. This does indeed
suggest that only valid HTML markup is allowed. Hmm.
