plan to fix the broken html-escaped code sections?

Anything that was imported from the previous site with code sections is broken, eg: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Updating-a-custom-field-using-groovy-script-runner/qaq-p/256708

Characters like > and < are displayed in the code as html character entities, like &gt;. This is hard to spot, and leads to compilation errors. It actually makes all previous answers that contains code or xml snippets worse than useless.

Is this so hard to fix? People have put a lot of effort into these answers prior to the move to Lithium, now we get a stream of "this code doesn't work" comments.

These are the likely replacements that need to be made:

<less than&lt; 
>greater than&gt; 
&ampersand&amp; 
"double quotation mark&quot; 
'single quotation mark (apostrophe)&apos;
