illegal characters - on error?

When I tried to post "fail on error" (without the spaces), it triggered the "Sorry, your post appears to have an illegal HTML tag." message because of the "on error" part.

Is this supposed to trigger even if the objectionable text is part of another word?

Hmmm... I don't suppose you still have the full text of whatever you were trying to post? My quick tests indicate this works fine, but you've probably found a more subtle case.

The post was:

Steve,
You can add the attribute failonerror so the build fails if the code fails to compile.
-----------------------------------------------------------

It was in the Ant forum which has HTML not enabled. I don't know if this makes a difference so I thought I'd mention it.

That's weird. I just edited my original post (in the Ant forum) and it let me post "failonerror". I'll mention it if the problem happens again, but it seems ok for now.
