    I just noticed when I go in non text edit and do something like *:*smoker:*) (with no * of course!) it shows up fine in the preview, but then when I post it goes :smoker:) of course....

    Hope that is clear, anything to be done?

    yeah - but how come preview handles it and display gives up? Should be same parsing, no?

    The preview is a complicated beast as it often will try to parse code as you type it etc. etc. I won't even try to work out how they do it :D
