Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Often i want to write this: Action<T>, but it comes out as Action.

  1. Is there any easier way of getting it to not strip out the <T> tag (presumably because it's invalid HTML/Markup)?
  2. Should they be left in?
    1. Either through a whitelist (maybe per ).
    2. Or because it's not valid markup.

Testing: Action<T>

How can i also make it a link? – George Duckett Aug 2 '11 at 7:30
    
@Jeremy, that's not quite right. – George Duckett Aug 2 '11 at 7:33
    
@Jeremy, but it has the extra brackets. – George Duckett Aug 2 '11 at 7:34
    
@George Sorry, I stupidly misunderstood what you meant. [`Action<T>`][1] is what you want. – Jeremy Banks Aug 2 '11 at 7:35

Why do you need brackets around it? Just use the backtick to indicate code, per the editing help.

Action<T>

[`Action<T>`](http://example.com)

See http://stackoverflow.com/editing-help#code for details.
