I have to say this again, it drives me flippin nuts that I cannot use the
answer dialog to view raw tagged code any more.  Any time a string with tags
is answered, the dialog automatically tries to render them.  What if one
doesn't want this?  What if one wants to debug some lines of HTML or XML?
The code has to be dumped into a field or similar.

There should be some means to "answer" raw tagged code without rendering.
