Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

When I view this answer, the link for "recursive descent parser" from the first line also gets applied to the next few paragraphs.

I thought the poster had made a mistake, so I clicked on "edit". In that mode, the preview is correct.

It looks like there was a markdown processing bug but it was fixed. When posts are created/edited they're rendered once and saved, so they don't need to be rerendered every time somebody looks at them. Since that post hadn't been edited since 2009, it was still using a rendering from 2009. I made a trivial edit just now and it rerendered the whole post, which fixed the link

Thanks - knowing that a simple edit can fix older posts is handy. – Mike Pelley Oct 4 '11 at 18:03
