This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What do you mean it doesn't match? – simchona Apr 14 '12 at 21:15

I think my edit fixed it.

Problem was with having tabs for indent, and using <pre><code> around the whole thing.

See the editing help - indent code with four spaces. (Select all the code and hit the {} button.) Same for the data sections, just paste, select and Ctrl-K.

More precisely: using <pre><code> is fine, but needs manual HTML encoding of < into &lt;, and so on. That's not needed when using the Markdown four spaces. – Arjan Apr 14 '12 at 21:29
Thank you. I will look over this so it doesn't happen again. – jftuga Apr 14 '12 at 21:35
