What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

One of the things I love about the Stack Exchange sites is how pervasive Markdown is. You can literally use it almost everywhere. Heck, I'm using it right now, as I type this.

So, you can imagine my surprise when I submitted a cover letter recently on careers.stackoverflow.com and discovered that cover letters are one of the few places that Markdown isn't supported.

Is there a reason for this, or is it just an oversight? I would love to be able to use Markdown in cover letters when applying for jobs on careers.stackoverflow.com.

Lies; no Markdown was used while you were typing that sentence. – BinaryTox1n Mar 27 '13 at 20:08
Lies; Plain text is a proper subset of Markdown :P – Nick Aceves Mar 27 '13 at 20:30
If that's the case then what are you complaining about? Careers cover letters fully support the aforementioned subset. :) – BinaryTox1n Mar 27 '13 at 20:31
