Description Kyle Simmons 2007-06-08 00:46:30 UTC
I have my signature set to:

[[User:Keylay31|<font color="000000">'''Key'''</font><font color="FFE303">'''lay'''</font>]]

with the Raw signature box unchecked. This normally results in the name Keylay in two colors and a link to my profile. However, when logging in today, upon typing ~~~, the following occurs:

[[User:Keylay31|&#91;&#91;User:Keylay31&#124;&lt;font color=&quot;000000&quot;&gt;&#39;&#39;&#39;Key&#39;&#39;&#39;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;FFE303&quot;&gt;&#39;&#39;&#39;lay&#39;&#39;&#39;&lt;/font&gt;]]]]

I have provided a link to my sandbox as the URL, you can see the issue there. 

The first thing appearing is the output when I type ~~~, the second when I copy the code in my signature directly to the page, and the output upon entering ~~~~.

Is this an issue with my browser? Or some preference?

You're using the feature incorrectly.  Please read the documentation: "If unchecked, the contents of the box above will be treated as your nickname and link automatically to your user page."  You're entering the full link, so it tries putting a link inside a link.  Either check "Raw signature" or use "<font color="000000">'''Key'''</font><font color="FFE303">'''lay'''</font>" instead.
