<b>test..</b>

I see no troubles, tag chars are stored as HTML encoded and spanish I is a standard ASCII char...

it's not plain text is most likely uses the php function strip slashes

http://uk2.php.net/manual/en/function.stripslashes.php

if this is a problem with vbulletin, the best place to take it up is the vbulletin forums...

I think it's you that doesn't get it...
I mean no offence, and I know that you like to specialise in white hacking,

But the PHP function strip slashes removes al HTML code, there is no way that triangular brackets can be put on the page as they are transformed into the HTML codes &lt and &gt...

That is why forums have bulletin codes, ([ img ] [ url ]) etc for putting links and pictures.

regular html objecs cannot be entered into usernames, signatures, locations or any other individual user definable part of the page...

you say people just don't get it, but had you bothered to right click and view the source you'd have realised that the < and> chars that you are so worried about aren't actually there at all...

--edit--
it's actually be worse to use plani text tags...
http://www.mountaindragon.com/html/plaintxt.htm
which are now obselete anyway...
and if you use the Pre tags (which replaced plain text), it doesn't stop scripts anyway...
Code:
<pre>
<script>Alert("script ran!");
</script>
</pre>
