In trying to get inputbox's "type=comment" parameter working, I found that it doesn't work at all, actually. I tried it also on other Wikimedia projects, such as Test wikipedia, English Wikipedia, etc. Not sure why it's not working, but I think it's a big problem that should be fixed seeing it applies to all of the wikimedia projects. An example of the problem is linked to in the URL field.

Removes htmlspecialchars() from stripping out a hidden field for posting a new comment
This patch worked on my local mediawiki installation. The $comment variable has HTML markup in it and the htmlspecialchars() function escapes the tags.
This was applied in r30582.
