The Mac client lacks the ability to flag text within a rich text field as passthru HTML.  What's more, when you're editing an existing document that contains passthru HTML (presumably done on a Windows client), even touching the existing passthru is an invitation to a world of hurt.
Passthru HTML should be treated just like any other rich-text attribute and should be settable in the menus or text properties along with italic, bold, font size, colors, etc.
Yes, you can often work around this with the old square-brackets trick, but this should be put on a par with all other rich text attributes.  This would also take a tiny amount of the heat off the issue of lack of a Designer client for Mac, since you'd at least be able to edit inline HTML, Javascript, etc. in RTFs.

Absolutely. This is one of the few reasons I need to run the Notes 8.5 client on the Fusion machine on my Mac

I think this is true of the Notes client on the Windows platform too. It's a silly ommision.
