Appears to be fixed in 3.1 so need to work out what fixed it and backport.

I think that this behavior is correct. Test test_simple_format_should_not_be_html_safe_when_sanitize_option_is_false shows this.

So I think the problem is in 3-1-stable, and that it's behavior in this case is wrong. The test I just mentioned was committed to 3-0-stable, but does not appear in 3-1-stable. It appears that the change in simple_format behavior you allude to in 3.1 was caused in an attempt at fixing Issue #1745.

I've made a change for simple_format in 3-1-stable that I think will address the problem raised in Issue #1745, while still giving the correct behavior when :sanitize => false, and added some tests.

I am quite new to rails, so please double check to see if what I've found and done make any sense.

hey @jonleighton, since Rails 3-0-stable is not supported anymore is this still an issue? If so I'll work on that.
