Meta Description Problem

I was looking into meta info for my site using a "meta information checker" website. When the meta-checker-website checks my websites meta description...it returns the correct meta description...but for some reason it's also including some of the html code.

Here's an example of what this meta checker website is returning (I'm using msn.com as an example...but I'm also including the code that shows up when I actually check my website):


"Your customizable and curated collection of the best in trusted news plus coverage of sports, entertainment, money, weather, travel, health and lifestyle, combined with Outlook/Hotmail, Facebook, Twitter, Bing, Skype and more.>

<meta name="


Notice how the parts I bolded are included in the meta description & shouldn't be.

I'm running vBulletin 4.2.5...and I entered the meta description info directly into the headinclude template.

I'm using the proper html meta code format:

<meta name="description" content="Welcome to my website.>

Not really sure why some of the html meta code is showing up when the meta description is checked.

Any ideas,

Thanks

Sorry...I messed up my original post. This is what my sites meta description code looks like (example text in quotes):

<meta name="description" content="Welcome to my website.”>

I think that's all correct...if not...please let me know.

I have this meta description statement at the very top of my sites headinclude template...if that should be helpful to know.

Also...just as an experiment...I moved this meta description statement to my sites header template. And when I did this...it displayed some <div> code...which isn't even part of the meta description statement.

Thanks
