Okay, that was useful. Span tags are not, unfortunately, allowed in
readme.txt, AFAICK -- parse-readme.php contains.
$allowed = array(
'a' => array(
'href' => array(),
'title' => array(),
'rel' => array()),
'blockquote' => array('cite' => array()),
'br' => array(),
'p' => array(),
'code' => array(),
'pre' => array(),
'em' => array(),
'strong' => array(),
'ul' => array(),
'ol' => array(),
'li' => array(),
'h3' => array(),
'h4' => array()
Which is unfortunate for me. Ah well. Think again. Thanks for the help.
