Bug: Incorrect nesting of list tags and verbatim tags

A list item enclosed by <verbatim>...</verbatim> tags that are in turn under a list item swaps the order of the resulting </ul> and </pre> tags in the rendered page.

Test case

Suppose you write this (this example is derived from acutal code in the beta's TWikiPreferences page):

   * A list item.
      * A sublist item.

This code is rendered like this:

  • A list item.
      * A sublist item.

However, the actual HTML is:

<li>A list item.
      * A sublist item.

Note how the </pre> closing tag occurs after the </ul> closing tag. It should like like this:

<li>A list item.
      * A sublist item.

Netscape, IE, and Mozilla browsers will display the resulting badly nested HTML without complaint, but the W3C's Amaya browser chokes on the flipped tags.

Fix record

Added this in TWiki::getRenderedVersion :

        if( $insidePRE || $insideVERBATIM ) {
            # inside PRE or VERBATIM

            # close list tags if any
            if( @code ) {
                $result .= &emitCode( "", 0 );
                $code = "";
