using [more] in post but not showing More...

Mar 11 at 1:24 PM
Seems silly but I have written a post about the house styles for writing posts here, and one of the things I wrote about was the use of [more].

However it seems that even if I put &#91 and &#93 to try and hide the test [more] from the engine, when it is in a code section it shows up as <span id="continue"></span> when published.

Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.
