Old code that used to work in WYSIWYG doesn't in 6.7

The example code below used to have < and >, but when you scan further down, you'll see &lt; and &gt;

So when it comes to previously working pages and someone publishes the page with this code, without editing this specific page, the incorrect code goes through and spits out "#END-CODE-->" instead of a Flash slideshow. I had similar trouble with the comments <!--#START-CODE, #END-CODE--> with some Google Analytics tracking code. Right now, I'm having to pull the comments out, but the users don't know what it is and it appears in the Spell Check as errors.

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">   AC_FL_RunContent(

        'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0',`

        'width', '731',

        'height', '275',

        'src', 'slideshow',

        'quality', 'high',

    Could you try attaching that code as a file or indenting every line with 4 spaces to get it to show up correctly. Thanks!

    I was able to reproduce this using a simple example as well. I've created an issue to address this. You can track the problem here.

    In the meantime, I would recommend pasting code like this into XML Blocks whenever possible as that code won't be touched by any formatting routines.

    True, however, the areas this is occurring in are DD's. I am working on new blocks and formats, so users don't have to worry about that code in their WYSIWYGs..., but that is further down the road for implementation - and won't solve every code problem. I'll await news of a solution! Thanks!
