Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Under the new elasticsearch, if you run a search where there will be html code listings included with the result snippets, instead of HTMLEncode()ing the angle brackets (<, >) that should be included, these characters are simply not shown at all.

Here's an example result:

Missing Angle Brackets example

Note the % % in the requisite free-hand circle. That should look like this: <% %>.

I could swear there was a frowny face icon on that bug tag a few minutes ago. – Joel Coehoorn Jan 5 '13 at 6:17

This was fixed the day after posting but I forgot to update this question, enjoy the long-ago bugfix!

It works correctly in the title. The issue is occurring only in the answer excerpt:

enter image description here

The same thing occurs with question excerpts, unsurprisingly.

Another, probably related bug

That second query exposes a second bug: the hyperlinked title of the first result is broken and unclickable:

Broken hyperlink

Looks like improper escaping.

The escaping bug was a different thing, but fixed in the last deploy...thanks for the report. I'll be looking into the angle brackets later today, I suspect we may be indexing without them...will update when I find the cause and see what we can fix. – Nick Craver Jan 5 '13 at 12:49
