It looks like WordPress is converting some characters and is stripping out the code.

Can you verify if this works for you or not?

I was able to replicate the problem Chrome, but I didn't ask what browser you were using.
If this is good with you, I've made a shortcode that will make this much easier for you.

You'll need to update your theme if you want this to work.
I've added this to the repository if you want to download.
The only file changed was: wp-content/themes/functions/content_functions.php
