    Custom HTML widget thinks the angles in are special characters, by sleeplessinDC

    I have a working widget in my site that contains a PHP includes statement. It has been a saved working widget for months but today, I added a line break in the text and now I can’t save the widget because I get a message that says special characters [ < ] need to be escaped, and both the < and the > are underlined in red. If I escape them, the PHP won’t work. This is new under WordPress 4.9.4. It was working in WordPress 4.9.2. Why is the Custom HTML widget now looking at them as special characters? How can this be fixed?
