I can't see it. It just looks like a URL.
Yea, the site's stuffed it up since it was posted...

I don't see it... Its HTML, it would never be allowed...
I don't see it today but it was just fine when I posted it (else I would have deleted it)

I see this video, FF3/Mac Leopard.  We'll check other combos asap.

I think (perhaps) that this is a syntax / formattiing / user error - it's possibly not the site but the <em>use</em> of-<br />?<br /><br />L<br /><br /> spell-checker is out-of-use on this new system,<br />

 Very possibly - however, I thought I did it correctly - clicked the video button, pasted my link, and got the accursed invalid formatting error. It's a pain even to post a comment with NO formatting at all. I miss the old comment box. :(

It was working...but since the (reported) html bug it's stopped again.
Agreed,  my post above was working.....
