So, before I explain this in detail, I want to note the log of our discovery of this in General tab at the bottom of this post. It is rather lengthy.
Also, I should hope that this actually isn't a bug and the Devs wanted us to have this. :drool:

So, yeah.
Skyrates Classic will sometimes parse the codes ((< or > seem to be the only ones)). Otherwise, Skyrates, as I presume is intentional, converts them into question marks.
Skylight parses the codes indiscriminately.
Skyrates Classic sometimes reads the HTML code and ends up with -;

Other nuances I haven't really identified, yet, but to be perfectly honest, I kind'a wanted this. :grin:
Problem is, I'm fairly certain there's a reason Devs put the filter on it in Classic.

Anyhow, we'll have fun with © and ― until Devs fix or embrace this. :razz:

(( I didn't feel like writing in the /fiesta parts, but the &lt;3 at the beginning was me posting /fiesta <3 ))

29 Oct 2011 - 13:11:18 PDT Maya: I know. As written. =p
29 Oct 2011 - 13:11:48 PDT Marcus Langley: having them parse the code was probably a case of "why bother turning it off?"

29 Oct 2011 - 13:14:36 PDT Maya: It's just symbols.
29 Oct 2011 - 13:14:45 PDT Maya: It's not like I hacked Skyrates or anything.
29 Oct 2011 - 13:14:46 PDT Maya: ...
29 Oct 2011 - 13:14:47 PDT Maya: Right?
29 Oct 2011 - 13:15:55 PDT Vincent Cross: ""
29 Oct 2011 - 13:15:59 PDT Vincent Cross:

...(Some testing in HC; my conclusion)...
Maya [Dev Eyepatch]: Skyrates will write and parse (&) lt; gt; #_____;
Maya [Dev Eyepatch]: It will only do so if the semi-colon is present, where Skylight doesn't care.
Maya [Dev Eyepatch]: (&) #_____; results in -;
Maya [Dev Eyepatch]: If the blank is filled with anything but numbers, (&) #_____; results in -_____;
