Bug: %COLOR% improperly rendered in $ tags

I'm using %COLOR%XXX%ENDCOLOR% in $ : (<dt> <dd> etc.) tags, and the colour in the preview works, but not when it's viewed from bin/view

Addendum: Hmm, looking at the source, it seems that the 0 in the document in question (see URI below) being wrapped gets "eaten" somehow. Seems that it occurs in other documents, with

= =
(fixed font) text formatting.

Test case


see page; then see the raw output

Other values to look at:
floppy drive with install floppies
ethernet on > Open Firmware 3.0 models
ethernet on < Open Firmware 3.0 models
scsi-int/sd@3:0: fast-narrow internal SCSI on early PCI PowerMacs
scsi-ext/sd@3:0: external SCSI on later PowerMacs with more than one SCSI bus
scsi/sd@3:0: SCSI (may be ambiguous on machines with more than one SCSI bus)
ata/ata-disk@0:0, ata/ATA-Disk@0:0, ide0/disk@0:0, ide1/disk@0:0, hd:0, cd:0: IDE drive with "partition zero" bootloader or quik. It's unclear to the editor whether you can boot from slave devices on earlier machines with on-board IDE
Internal IDE hard drive on Open Firmware 3 system with vmlinux located on an HFS partition. The 0 is for IDE entries is the master or slave device (master is 0, slave is 1). It is not clear whether you can boot from slave devices on earlier machines with on-board IDE. The 0 is the partition you're going to boot from. For disks with NetBSD disklabels (such as one created by the NetBSD install tools or the distributed boot floppy), use 0 to load the "partition zero" bootloader. For disks with an Apple partition map, use the partition number of your Linux partition. Somewhere between 4 and 8, since the MacOS drivers will be on partitions 2 to 4 usually, and you might have HFS partitions - use mac-fdisk -l in the Debian installer on VT2, or the initialise button of the Drive Setup util in MacOS (being careful to not actually re-initialise the disk if you don't need to); these should tell you exactly which partition it is. I usually name my Linux partitions like '/' and '/usr' to make them easier to find later on. Note that machines with Open Firmware 3 will not boot from a "partition zero" bootloader, and need to find the bootloader or kernel on an HFS, MS-DOS, or ISO9660 partition or over ethernet.

Seems to be a style problem with the NatSkin cause it obviously does work here.

maybe, but not necessarily; this site isn't running the dakar codebase either.

I'm running off of Dakar + svn checkouts
