On the revision page there is a button with <> on a little page. "show the markdown source side by side" I don't see any markdown there.

As I understand, I should see there tags as in this post? But I see no traces of any tags.

I use Opera on Linux As example revisions was taken the post here.

Note that it says Markdown source, not HTML source.

*This* is **Markdown**.

And <em>this</em> is <strong>HTML</strong>, with the tags and all.

See the editing help page and the Markdown syntax documentation.

So, it shows only tags that I have written there by hand? –  Gangnus Feb 6 '12 at 14:30
    
@Gangnus It shows the differences between the raw text of the two revisions. If you used some of the allowed HTML tags instead of Markdown syntax, you'd see them in this view as well. –  lunboks Feb 6 '12 at 14:36
