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 recently submitted a job application on Careers, and I wanted to make use of the "italic text" feature that was built in to the cover letter edit box.

It seemed to work well while I was editing the cover letter, however when I went back to make a change later (and during the review step), the italics had disappeared and the spacing around the italicized words was gone.

Also, I tried using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+I instead of the icon, and while the mode toggling worked, when I left italic mode the italicized word I had just written became un-italicized (this was in the editor, before preview mode). The spacing remained normal. Not sure if this is a bug or misfeature. This is independent from the bug outlined in the above paragraph.

I am using Google Chrome (latest as of question posting).
