What is meta?

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In the question What was Dooku's plan for the Battle of Coruscant?, I used the >! syntax to create a spoiler section, but it shows up as a normal blockquote with a ! at its start.

You need to extend the spoiler Markdown across all of the lines. For instance,

>! *PALPATINE*: Good, Anakin, good. I knew you could do it. Kill him. Kill him now!  
>! *ANAKIN*: I shouldn't . . .  
>! *PALPATINE*: Do it!!  
>! Anakin cuts off Count Dooku's head.

renders as

PALPATINE: Good, Anakin, good. I knew you could do it. Kill him. Kill him now!
ANAKIN: I shouldn't . . .
PALPATINE: Do it!!
Anakin cuts off Count Dooku's head.

@PopularDemand Ah, good find. I had somehow forgotten about that thread. The original one introducing the feature isn't as detailed. – Tim Stone Sep 30 '11 at 16:20
