That which must not be mentioned

Okay, having just moved to WordPress, I must almost immediately report a problem. I have, at great expense, uncovered a truly weird bug. Believe it or not, you can’t make a post with the word perl in it. I had to resort to some tag trickery to get this to display. Here’s what I actually had to type:

p<span>erl</span>

Utterly bizarre.

At least I figured out why my post a few days ago didn’t work. I’m running WordPress 2.0.5, freshly downloaded. Can any WordPress users out there confirm if they’re seeing this too?

  1. Right then gents. Move along please. We don’t need that kind of rubbish talk around here.

    I’m surprised my profanity checker let this rot get through.
