When writing an answer to a question on my phone using the Android Chrome browser, I cannot include a block of sample code using the 4 spaces formatting rule. It just displays the code as one long sentence. Is there another way of displaying multiple lines of formatted and indented code, and are there any plans to improve the mobile site answer formatting?
This is trying to be a code block And written on a mobile browser
Edit: OK, I've worked out the problem. Just my lack of knowledge of the correct markdown (and possibly unclear markdown instructions). You have to have a clear line before a 4-space indent to make a code block. I've possibly found another issue with markdown in comments though. Using underscores to make text italic didn't work for me just now from my phone. I'll try again to confirm.
Edit: Problem resolved. The Chrome browser for Android does not display italic text. I tried it in the standard browser, and it looked fine.
