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

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. – a cat Feb 6 '12 at 14:36
