Dear colleagues,

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.
