# Why does the source of this question not remain the same when viewing and editing? [duplicate]

More and more images go missing. Can the cooked HTML be rebuilt?

I'm very confused by the source of this question. I just pulled it up to link to it, and saw that the imgur was broken:

OK, I'm sure I can just fix that by editing the question I thought. So I clicked "Edit", and mysteriously the image was correct:

But that's not what the actual HTML source code of the question shows!

I thought maybe the system is smart enough to /i\.imgur\.com/i\.stack\.imgur\.com/g on it's own to correct older images on edit, but if that's what is happening, then why does the edit history show me that Robert corrected it himself?

I am confused, explanations?

Also, I have not edited this question at all yet so you can see what I mean. –  The Unhandled Exception Oct 28 '11 at 13:04
This, maybe? –  Yi Jiang Oct 28 '11 at 13:04
@YiJiang's独角兽 Related definitely. But if it was retroactively replaced why is it not correct in the HTML source? –  The Unhandled Exception Oct 28 '11 at 13:06
Actually, it's this –  Sathya Oct 28 '11 at 13:39
You're correct @Sathya -- my question should be closed as a duplicate. –  The Unhandled Exception Oct 28 '11 at 13:41
