Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

I was trying to update the text on my profile that includes a couple of links for which the Markdown was generated using the Hyperlink button on the toolbar e.g.

<p>[Email][1] and [Twitter messages][2] from stackoverflow members welcome.</p>


  [1]: http://example.org
  [2]: http://twitter.com/example

However, this is just rendering as:

[Email][1] and [Twitter messages][2] from stackoverflow members welcome.

Have I formatted something wrongly or is this currently not working correctly?

Why do you have an unnecessary <p> tag in there? That will complicate matters.

Thanks Jeff, removing the <p> tags fixes it. I haven't edited my profile for a long time so in the past the unnecessary tags must not have caused a problem. – mikej Sep 14 '11 at 8:51
