mailto being formated incorrectly <span class="Email"> issue

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Email adresses in the "about" section of each user and in the Dashboard under Users is displayed incorrectly and therefore the mailto doesn't work when clicked.
I think the problem is with the "Email" class, i.e. dashboard displays the following malformed format in all users:
Username1 [email protected]">[email protected]
intead something like this (that should be linked to a mailto href):
Username1 [email protected]
<span class="Email"> <a mailto:[email protected]"" href="mailto:<a href=">[email protected]</a> "> <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> </span>
That really doesn't look good, also if only the last "<a href.." sentence was present, it would work fine. I don't understand why the first statement. Applied a patch I found at: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/12928/email-address-format-xhtml-compatible
but it didn't make a difference, please help!
Thanks.
