Note to Blogger: Your Composer Sucks!

Sorry guys but when I type a lower than or a greater than sign in the compose mode of the post editor, I really intend to display < and > and not some kind of HTML element.

If I want to enter HTML elements, I use the "Edit Html" tab.

So why on earth is your editor unable to properly escape these damn characters? It took me 15 minutes to clean up the mess your stupid composer made of my generic code samples in my previous post and the manual cleaning process of the messy HTML produced was so tedious I decided to drop half of the code sample.

Please, please, please do something about it. This is not rocket science. This is basic character escaping.

Thank you.
