Well, I was looking at Perl Monks and as I can understand the <code> they
use is actually their own invention which happens to look like a real HTML
entity but in fact they replace it with some other HTML code.

Still looking at Monks, while I see they allow some 40 or so different
HTML tags but as much as I could tell from a quick look at the posts people
are using only a very limited set of the possibilities
I saw <b> <a> <code> <readmore>, <br>, <p> and something to make further
indentation but I did not check what was that.

Those whom are more familiar with the Monks, do you have other experience?

List of their approved HTML list is here:
