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

I've noticed the following inconsistency (spotted here).

I believe it is not expected to have the different word showing twice (instanced underlined with yellow) for the highlighted markup.

Tested on IE9 in compatibility mode:

What browser? I see only one different after the colon. There's only one in the View Source as well. – AakashM Oct 23 '12 at 14:38
@AakashM, I've updated it with the version; now, what did you use? ;) – Petru Gardea Oct 23 '12 at 14:40
shows only 1 "different" to me. – Rob Oct 23 '12 at 14:43
@Robuust, just realized the compatibility mode was ON. – Petru Gardea Oct 23 '12 at 14:44
Mmm, colour me status-norepro with IE 9 (exactly same as yours), FF 16, Chrome whatever-we're-up-to-now... – AakashM Oct 23 '12 at 14:45
@AakashM, it was with compatibility turned ON - updated the post, too. – Petru Gardea Oct 23 '12 at 14:46
I fixed the core issue there (author was trying to bold text inline, not possible with ** without spaces) so most likely it also fix this weird "bug". :) – Shadow Wizard Oct 23 '12 at 14:46
Wasn't this reported some days ago with an extra 'X' appearing out of nowhere? Can't find it at the moment. – Bart Oct 23 '12 at 14:48
IE7 does this all the time. Is the compatibility mode that compatible? – Bo Persson Oct 23 '12 at 15:13
