Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

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
