Upfront will not accept my html and discards changes


I am trying to add html code to the draggable code element but it gives me red invalid code icon and loses my changes when I save.

At first I tried to add my whole form to the element:

<form id="searchForm" action="/" method="get">
    <div class="input-group">
        <input type="text" class="form-control search" name="s" id="search" placeholder="Search..." required>
            <span class="input-group-btn">
                <button class="btn btn-default" type="submit"><i class="fa fa-search"></i>

It didn't like this so I tried just the form tag:

<form id="searchForm" action="/" method="get">


It still wouldn't accept it so then I tried this:


It finally accepted it but now when I go to make any changes to it and click save, the code window dissapears but none of the changes I made have been saved.

How can I tell the HTML validator to chill out and accept my code? What validation library are you using? Can I get the actual error anywhere?

** EDIT **

I had a look in the code and saw you are using ace editor. I went to http://ace.c9.io/build/kitchen-sink.html and set to HTML and added my code and it detected no errors so I think you have a bug here.

** EDIT **

OK, I have discovered the exact bug. Your editor does not like it when code is pasted. I am using chrome "paste as plain text" but it just does not like it. I sat there and wrote the code out by hand and it allowed it and saved it.

Is this re-producible for you?
