This is a known issue and will be fixed in due time.

Unfortunately, it's not very high on the 'things to fix immediately list.'

I added a comment using verbatim markup to a bug, and the resulting display in the browser is corrupted (although the email shows the correct content)

See my comment of Jan 16 here:

You can probably look up the content in the database, but FYI this is what it was:

After some discussion recently by the GNU maintainers, the coding standards
have been modified:

In the C locale, the output of GNU programs should stick to plain ASCII for
quotation characters in messages to users: preferably 0x22 (‘"’) or 0x27
(‘'’) for both opening and closing quotes. Although GNU programs
traditionally used 0x60 (‘`’) for opening and 0x27 (‘'’) for closing
quotes, nowadays quotes ‘`like this'’ are typically rendered
asymmetrically, so quoting ‘"like this"’ or ‘'like this'’ typically
looks better.

I used the correct verbatim tags (+'s and -'s on both sides) in my post; I didn't use them here since I'm not sure it won't mess up again.
