html rendered in Managed Newsgroups - ASP

Maybe I'm losing my mind, but... Whenever someone posts code in one of these newsgroups (i.e. this one!) My browser is rendering the code and NOT displaying the source. For example, Ray's response to the question about "Request.form.count varies by machine" renders the text box with the test "something else" in it. I think this is a new phenomena, as I don't remember this happening before. Any idea what is causing this? Thanks,...

    Default html rendered in Managed Newsgroups

    Maybe I'm losing my mind, but...

    Whenever someone posts code in one of these newsgroups
    (i.e. this one!) My browser is rendering the code and NOT
    displaying the source.

    For example, Ray's response to the question
    about "Request.form.count varies by machine"
    renders the text box with the test "something else" in it.

    I think this is a new phenomena, as I don't remember this
    happening before.

    Any idea what is causing this?

    Whatever online newsreader you're using isn't html encoding or something
    then. That's odd. This should show up as html for you then, I'd imagine:

    <input name="txt" type="text" value="something
    else">

    I wonder if this will work.
    <script language="javascript">alert('Hey John');</script>

    It's all rather peculiar. Your line with the "<input..."
    showed up as source; however, I got you JS alert when I
    hit the page!

    I am using the MSDN web interface to the newsgroups at:
    [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/newsgroups/managed/[/url]
