What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

For example if I try to link like this:

![image][1]

It looks like this:
image

But if I try this:

![image>you][3]

It ends up jumbled:
the way it will look

Ha!

It seems as I have broken the html.

This should be fixed if people want to be able to have > in their alt tags


Other fun with the :

![image><h1>how is this possible?</h1><a href="#">Weird</a>, don'tcha think?<a ][4]

Becomes:
second error

@balpha haha true true. but the issue with > is still present :-) –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 8 '11 at 18:26
    
@balpha see update. an issue with any direction you put those brackets. you can put full html in there! –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 8 '11 at 18:31

How is that different? That's the same thing. The HTML sanitizer eats everything between opening and closing angle brackets that doesn't look valid. And an img tag that ends in the middle of the alt attrbute certainly doesn't :) –  balpha Dec 8 '11 at 18:35
