text format monospace does not work

We have a new JIRA test implementation up and running and at first glance it appears to be working, vey very slowly, but it is working.


However the input of monospace text fails and the screen shows the text entered with double braces around it. Shouldn't the text ( or code snippit ) be monospaced and with format preserved ?

I have noted that the double brace tag for monospace does not span line breaks.

So the example below would be monospaced:

{{This is monospace}}


But this code example would not:

print "This is not"
print "Sorry . . . "


For multiple lines of mono-spaced text, try the noformat or code tags.   If you need markup of mono-spaced text, have the administrator enable html, and use an html block to tag the text as preformatted <pre>
