Closed, ResolvedPublic


The tooltip contains <p>

When I visited
I noticed some <p> tags being displayed in the tooltips...

I think they shouldn't be there

Confirmed that this is a bug. I've just encountered this issue at The relevant HTML looks like this:

<input name="securepoll_q260_opt265" type="radio" value="0" checked="checked" title="&lt;p&gt;No vote&#10;&lt;/p&gt;" />

The title attribute should be simply "No vote" in this case. For some reason, the text is erroneously getting wrapped in (escaped) <p></p> tags.

I'm marking this bug with the "easy" keyword as it should be trivial to resolve.
