    Of course, 2 minutes later I figured it out! Sorry to bother, go ahead and delete this—-

    I am trying to pull the images for the blog i am building from an *external* server.

    I have done this before but for some reason I am hitting a snag this time.

    Basically in the publish page, there is a text field where the user enters a link to an image. lets say

    in the text field called


    with formatting set to *none*

    In my template I have:


    What I should get, is an image displaying on my page, but what I am actually getting is:

    a href=<span><a href=""></a>" />

    And a big fail on my rendered template. I have no idea why this is happening. Any ideas?
