Description Svick 2010-12-02 22:49:37 UTC
When a tag is nested inside another tag with the same name and the second instance is not preceded by a whitespace, the tag is incorrectly ended there in the rendered HTML:

<tt>outer <tt>inner</tt></tt>

is rendered correctly as

<tt>outer <tt>inner</tt></tt>



is rendered as


The same issue is present with other formatting tags, such as <b>, <i> and <em>.
