Inserting a Page Tree macro between strong XHTML tags breaks its functionality

Page Tree fails to render content, keeps spinning and loads no content.

In a section of text formatted in bold, inserting the Page Tree macro may fail if it gets in between two <strong> </strong> tags.


A similar tag excerpt to the following can be seen after opening the Storage Format view into the "Tools > View Storage Format"

<p><strong><ac:structured-macro ac:name="pagetree" /></strong></p>


The <strong> tag appears to break normal macro rendering when it is encapsulated into a couple of them.


Use the Confluence Source Editor to remove the enclosing <strong> tags.
