In response to this question, I did some tests and found that there's something strange going on with the HTML blocks at the moment, so I'm reporting it as a bug here.

Has the problem reported anything to do with the fact wikidot is not rendering the html codes between
[[html]] and [[/html]]? For example, go to http://mateas.wikidot.com/condicoes, where you can check and see such html environment used in the source, though nothing shows when viewing the page (I have tried IE8 and Chrome in two different computers - one with Windows 7, another with XP - in two different locations - two different cities - and the outcome is the same!).

Let me add that this was working a few days ago.

I just tested the html, embed and embedvideo tags (all related) and they all work for embedding a YouTube video.

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/EYEwH0fl4Nc&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/EYEwH0fl4Nc&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

And that video was just random… went to the YouTube home page and clicked on one. Haven't even watched it so I'm not responsible for it :P (Edit: It's worth watching!)

However, when I try to use acaetano's code, it doesn't work with the html tags…

Not even something this simple will work:


So there's definitely something strange going on here.
