The excerpt from a tag wiki as shown when a question's tag is hovered over is shown as typed. However, on the search page, tags are stripped. For example, 's excerpt reads:

A doctype declaration defines a document's type definition. It should be the very
first thing in an HTML document, before the <html> tag.

However, when shown on the search page, it's missing the tag:

A doctype declaration defines a document's type definition. It should be the very first thing in an HTML document, before the tag.

Not an XSS vulnerability, at least...

Yeah, that's weird. It eats the angle brackets, but doesn't respond to the backtick escape character, and the tag dropdown doesn't recognize backtick anyway. –  Robert Harvey Jul 2 '12 at 21:48

Still an issue, and it appears to come dangerously close to being a security flaw. –  U2744 SNOWFLAKE Jul 23 at 0:08
