Formatted Text Br0ked Answered

The formatting {{{  }}} feature in the 'ibles seems to be broken and horked.  I'm aware this is known, but man, the instructibles look like crap with the formatting missing.  Any ETA on pouring a bucket of fixage on it?
Thanks!

 Still haven't heard anything back about this problem and the problem persists. Is this a dead fish or is there some movement on it?

Thanks!

 And FWIW, I've viewed in both Google Chrome 4.0 and Firefox 3.5.5 on Windows Vista and same result.
Thanks!

Hi, Noah.  From the user's description, this sounds like a "global" problem involving the migration of the database from the old to new markup system.  Your "public" search interface won't find metacharacters in I'bles content. 

If you can do an SQL query by hand and your end, just look for I'bles steps still containing the strings "{{{" and "}}}" (which may need to be backslash-escaped).  Those should have gotten converted to "<pre>" and "</pre>" respectively during the migration, but it's pretty clear that a lot of stuff fell through the cracks.
