Unfortunately it isn't working for me. I tried using the tag but it is still ignoring "<". I saw based on Racke's post that it is supposed to convert it to "<" but even without the enable_html=1 it still just ignores it and doesn't even convert it to "<".
I grepped for "enable_html" and found it in Interpolate.pm. I'm not that good with Perl but I tried patching it there but still no luck.
I then downloaded a new Interpolate.pm, restarted IC, but still no luck.
Can anybody tell me where in the code and in what file I should be looking to make sure that I have this tag?
Any help is of course much appreciated!
