Why does my <pre> tag get moved by TinyMCE?

I'm using TinyMCE as a text editor and it's working great except for one very weird anomaly.


This is what I'm inserting:


<div class="code_frame">
   <div class="inner_code_frame" style="margin-top: 5px;">
      <div class="paper">          <pre style="font-family: arial; font-size: 9pt;">             &lt;html&gt;                &lt;table&gt;                   &lt;tr&gt;                      &lt;td&gt;                         hello                      &lt;/td&gt;                   &lt;/tr&gt;                &lt;/table&gt;             &lt;/html&gt;          </pre>       </div>    </div> </div>

Open in new window

This is what gets inserted...

<div class="code_frame">
<div class="inner_code_frame" style="margin-top: 5px;">
<div class="paper"> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td>hello</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <pre style="font-family: arial; font-size: 9pt;">&nbsp;</pre> </div> </div> </div>

Open in new window

Notice how <pre style="font-family: arial; font-size: 9pt;">&nbsp;</pre> has gotten completely displaced?


Why? 


And how do I fix that?
