What comment engine does instructables use?

I like the way it manages comments. It is sort of like an inline forum. Is it made by the instructables team? Is is propriety? Is it open source? Is there something similar?

In the Text Formatting I'ble, we wrote:

The text formatting codes ("IblesFormatting") used on Instructables is a subset of WikiFormatting.

The I'bles staff started with the open source WikiFormatting engine, and customized it in-house. The major missing pieces are
  • raw HTML
  • tables
  • arbitrary embedded images
and support for entities is pretty buggy.
Thanks kelsey- I never know it wasn't from scratch.
