I am teaching a web page design class. I have publisher provided question banks that I have converted from Microsoft Word documents to Aiken format. This was by far the easiest format to change it to.
I went through all of the quizzes & replaced every instance of < or > with < or > respectively. When the questions import, the HTML entities render correctly in the question area of the quiz, but in the answers portion, each < or > is replaced by &lt; or &gt;, so when they render, it looks like HTML entities in the quiz instead of < or >.
Is there a way to get the HTML entities to render correctly instead of replacing the ampersands with &? I am editing them manually for the current quiz, but this is obviously going to be a real problem for the rest of my course. I'm looking at hundreds of manual replacements which will take hours instead of a couple of simple find/replaces on a batch of files that would only take a minute.
Below is an example of what I'm dealing with:
i have exactly the same problem and have found no straightforward solution. have you got any response on this or found something usable?
I teach HTML too and have solved this question, for the most part..
Place a space in the tag and Moodle will not interpret it.
< span> and < li> for examples.
Explain it to the students and they will accept....
