escaping xml in notes

In the notes tab I am trying to store a block of XML for future reference. When I save, all closing tags that start with 'b' or 'i' are converted to closing bold and italic tags. For example, becomes and becomes .

1) How can I tell notes to not parse a message (treat it as raw text)?

2) Why does toodledo not leave non-understood tags alone? If toodledo thinks I maae a typo it should ask. The application should not assume it knows what I meant and silently change data.

The notes tab was not designed to store XML, and probably wont work. We have to filter HTML tags to avoid having a malformed note mess with the page's layout, and XML tags look like HTML tags, so they get cleaned as well. I'll look into it and see if we can do a better job of it.
