Problem with Jira 5.2.6 and html encoding in comments?

I noticed that if I add a comment like so:

<value name="search.google.url">http://www.google.cl/search?</value>

It ends up like so:

<value name="search.google.url">http://www.google.cl/search?</value>

Any idea what is going on, or how I can fix? Thanks.

Have you tried to use the {noformat} macro within the comments? Something like:

{noformat}
<value name="search.google.url">http://www.google.cl/search?</value>
{noformat}

This will ensure that the HTML format you've entered will be retained as-is.

Thanks. I switched renderer to Wiki style, and that solved my issues.

by the way -- if I go to the edit screen for the comment, I see the correct xml --- so it appears correctly in some situations.
