      Description

      If you paste some HTML source into TinyMCE containing a script tag with src attribute, like:

      <script src="http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js"></script>

      TinyMCE will strip the src attribute and leave <script></script> there.

      This happens for all users, including those with trusted content capability.

      I believe this is a bug because:
      a) Moodle 1.9 used to allow this, and it's necessary for embedding things such as twitter widgets, etc into HTML blocks.
      b) If I turn off javascript and circumvent TinyMCE, I can paste my script tags into the textfield and save it without problems. So it's not Moodle that strips it, it's TinyMCE.
