How to include examples of html/xml in a Edit Table Plugin?

Some users had a lot of tables (editable via the EditTablePlugin) showing sample of HTML code and the result, e.g:
code result
<b>X</b> X

However, at each edit/save cycle via the EditTable Edit button, the html code is evaluated once meaning the html entities &lt; is transformed into a <

They also used to have verbatim tags for big examples, but now edit/saving adds <br /> instead of newlines

The only workaround they found is to have one verbatim per line, eg:

<verbatim>one</verbatim> <verbatim>two</verbatim> <verbatim>three</verbatim>

Is there a way I missed to "protect" from extra expansion?

PS we are migrating to Foswiki 1.0.7 from... a TWiki Cairo, where we did not have this expansion.

The html tags are converted by WysiwygPlugin. To protect the edit table tags, put sticky tags around it. For example:

%EDITTABLE{ header="|*text*|" format="|textarea,6x48|" changerows="on"}%
| *text* |
| <b>X</b> |
| <strong>X</strong> |

Due to a bug in the plugin, the ending sticky tag is appended to the table, unless you put the nop tag before it on a new line.
