Lets see if I can duplicate it here.

<p>Spoiler: (highlight to see)
<table style="background-color: black; color: black"><tr><td><font color=black>This sentence was in a spoiler tag then I edited the post and got this.</font></td></tr></table>


Post edit the spoiler tags change to the above mess of tags.

Let me try to duplicate it, myself, to see if it's not just a really strange and specific issue on your end.

<p>Spoiler: (highlight to see)
<table style="background-color: black; color: black"><tr><td><font color=black>First it giveth then it taketh away</font></td></tr></table>


Right, I've edited it.

EDIT 2: ..damn, wow. I'd say a possible explanation is because [ SPOILER ] is seen in bbcode as shorthand for that big code above, so when you go back to edit it it gives you the full code (but with < > symbols instead of the bbcode standard [ ] which accounts for why it falls apart). So the solution is to, when editing spoiler-tag posts, go back and re-type [ SPOILER ] in their right places.


EXHIBITS:
Viceking's Graab (Step inside the maze. You could spend an eternity here.)
The Mythology of Empathy (Eight songs, nine tracks. Welcome death.)
Ancestor (Five tracks. Death of the Artist and Chinese mythology.)
Fear (A visual art exhibit in blog format.)
Nobody anymore, never again (Another visual art exhibit in blog format.)
The Everyblogger Triad: 1, 2, 3 (Embrace the bad writing, give into your psyche.)
PLAN 31 (Frank Slenderman: Ace Attorney)
OH GOD THE RAPTURE IS BURNING (400,000 words. Five months. All Fears. Excess. On fifth draft, not final.)
Topography Genera (15 blogs. Conventional horror. See seas rise.)

Right. Although I seem to recall this occurring before a long time ago, possibly right after the spoiler tags were introduced, and it getting fixed. I'm just hoping it can get fixed again to save time and effort on poster parts.

I'll look into it. Until then, just replace the html with the bbc code.

It appears that adding the mod code caused the spoiler code to glitch up, since I used basically the same code for both, with only minor alterations.

Anyway, there is not a new spoiler code.
Spoiler (Show/Hide)
BEHOLD


EDIT: and as you can see, editing does not break it.
