Why does my profile not display some HTML I enter properly?

To maximize cross-browser compatibility and make the site more accessible for people with disabilities, we use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to strip all browser default styling from many HTML tags on site-skinned pages.

On site-skinned comment pages, you can override this reset function by using inline CSS, using the <span style=""> tag. This trick will not work on profiles, however, because security concerns mean that we have to restrict the use of CSS on profiles.

To work around this issue, we are planning to allow you to display your profile in your journal's style, where you will be able to customize the layout however you'd like. We don't know when we'll be able to do this, but it is planned.
