It seem the editor has personal feelings... I just did again to check - copy/paste from VS, select the text, hit Tx to clean VS formatting, select language. Done... HTML text editors are funny things...
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. (V)
I use Visual Studio to create the content as a HTML page, and then copy paste it into the wizard. Fast and easy, and I don't have problems with CP's interpretation of what my markup means.

Take a look at this picture[^]. There really can't be any doubt that he is giving the referee the finger, or rather fingers as two makes it plural. But I realize now that I'm not a professional football player, and theres a perfectly reasonable explanation.
"The Portuguese football federation (FPF) reiterates that there was no gesture directed to the match referee and regrets the speculation which would seriously damage the interests of the player and the national team," they said a statement.
"The FPF clarifies that the gesture, which has been misinterpreted, was directed at team mate Bruno Alves and merely indicated instructions from coach Paulo Bento. Raul Meireles was just explaining that he would drop back to the position of central defender, playing on the right of the defence."
So, I guess the coach has some foul language when he explains his tactics; although that is not unusual in football
Portugal were bad especially in attack, and the defending was appalling. Germany on the other hand played reasonably well and was quite effective in front of the goal, and it wouldn't surprise me if they get to the final or even possibly win the whole thing.
Portugal did got few chances in first half and I think one in second. They messed it up though. For defense, I am not sure which game you were watching. There was no defense IMHO. The way Germany as played during games before WC, they are favorites. The have amazingly good bench strength as well.
At the end of the 90ties we somehow got into ORM. At the time - no matter how hard we tried - we always ended up with a messy and complicated code and filthy compromises. And it hasn't changed. But somehow frameworks like NHibernate and EntityFramework are becoming very popular.
So here is my rant.
Some time ago I worked on large projects and things were pretty predictable. You've got DB model. You generate your SQL procedure layer and your C# layer. Then you create your component / web service / wcf service / restful service and serialize results of your C# calls as POCOs.
Now try to do this with fancy NHibernate objects with auto-resolving proxy objects for related entities. It won't work. Because when objects are serialized their auto-resolving lazy evaluating proxies aren't. To solve it you duplicate /I'll write it again, for drama effect: duplicate/ your objects to create serializable POCOs. And then you create them CRUD functions on top of object models. Or even separate the entities /drama: dereference them having no two entities connected/... And, hey, you are back where you were with the stored procedures - only with lousier performance and three layers of crap on top of it.
So next time someone comes with a fancy-schmancy ORM wrapper it better already include web service / wcf service or restful service abstraction and work on top of it; rather then bellow it! Because otherwise we just off-load drudgery to the web services and call it "business layer" when in fact it is really a freaking "ORM back to stored procedures layer."
Back atcha - I have been using a home rolled ORM for over 15 years, started in VB5 and now support Silverlight/WCF. So a new kid on the block manages to talk me into EF, f*** me roan, there is a piece of sh*t if I ever saw one, change the name of a field (Customer.Customer is illegal) and spend the next 5 hours trying to work out how to fix your models!
Yeah I know it is familiarity but I like my hand rolled tool, I wrote the frickin thing and I know what it does, if I call it a dog it goes off and barks at a junior dev for me!.
Now shall we get started on the dogs breakfast called MVC, what a collection of half baked crap that is! No, I fell a whole new rant coming on over the MVC issue.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity RAH
