Description of problem

When attenpting to modify a HTML in the HTML pages management I have a problem with a <nav> tag that closes prematurely. I want the <nav> tag to enclose the entire HTML page, but the HTML editor won't let me. It immediately closes the tag. This is what I want to get:

Code:
<nav id="menu-wrap"> MY HTML CODE </nav>

But instead, this is what I get after saving the HTML file:

Code:
<nav id="menu-wrap"></nav> MY HTML CODE <nav id="menu-wrap"></nav>

The end result is of course that my HTML code is not enclosed by the <nav> tag.

Thanks for your help!

Hello

Our editor doesn't recognize the tag <nav>. By consequence, it closed the tag randomly and destructures the whole layout Sad
I don't have solution! You should not use <nav> tag!

Maybe @Ange tuteur has a better explanation than mine...

Thanks for your understanding!

Hi !

I cannot seem to recreate the problem.
http://forumbeta.forumactif.com/h2-test-de-nav
Code:
<nav id="menu-wrap">
  <a href="/">Accuiel</a> &bull;
  <a href="/memberlist">Membres</a> &bull;
  <a href="/groups">Groupes</a> &bull;
  <a href="/search">Rechercher</a>
</nav>

Are you using advanced mode or simple ? I wasn't able to recreate it in either mode, but if you're making HTML pages, I HIGHLY suggest using advanced mode. The SCEditor can cause tag corrections which are less than helpful.

Do you mean "simple" or "WYSIWYG" mode? I use "simple". In WYSIWYG mode I can't see the tags.
