What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 144 Stack Exchange communities.

As per Jeff's suggestion in this comment:

You can use this question as a formatting sandbox. You can

  • edit this question itself (Community Wiki questions such as this one require 100 reputation to edit)
  • post answers to this question (Since this question is protected, this requires earning 10 reputation on this site)
  • post comments to this question or its answers

Beware that since the changes to syntax highlighting in December 2010, and the inline hints added March 2011, no syntax highlighting is applied unless the question's tags or an inline hint enable it. So, to test highlighting here in the sandbox:

  1. On the start of a line, specify a language inline using <!-- language: lang --> hints, and indent the code 4 spaces as usual. There is a full list of hints (scroll down a little).

    <!-- language: lang-html -->
    
        While not hinted otherwise: <html></html> source <b>goes</b> "here".
    
    <!-- language: lang-js -->
    
        var a = 3;
        while (not (a > 0)) {
            alert("JavaScript code <b>goes</b> here.");
        }
    
  2. Or set some language tags to this question:

    • See the explanation and the list of languages.

    • Adding clashing tags, such as both and , enforces a fallback to default, which is different from "no highlighting". (These tags are currently set on this question.)

  3. Or:

    • Save your post.

    • Use something like Firebug (Firefox), Web Inspector (Safari, Chrome) or Developer Tools (Internet Explorer 8) to edit the resulting HTML. To open Chrome Dev Tools, press F12

    • Find the <pre> element and add the attribute class="prettyprint", or change it into something more specific, like class="lang-vb prettyprint".

    • Run the following in the location bar: javascript:prettyPrint();

(TESTING LONGER ALL-CAPS ANSWER THAT MIGHT NOT TRIP BOT QUALITY FILTER)

FIRST, LOOK AT THE WHOLE PROGRAM

10 N=2000
20 PRINT "ARMSTRONG NUMBERS"
25 PRINT "BETWEEN 1 AND 2000"
30 PRINT
40 FOR 1=1 TO N
50 S=O
60 K=I
70 Q=INT(K/10)
80 R=K-10*Q
90 S=S+R*R*R
100 K=Q
110 IF K<>O THEN 70
120 IF I<>S THEN 130
125 PRINT I
130 NEXT I
140 END 

FIRST, WE INITIALIZE THE VARIABLE "N" TO 2000, THEN WE PRINT SOME INTRODUCTION TO THE USER. NEXT, THERE IS FOR-LOOP FROM 1 to N (2000). THE LOOP IS DOING IT'S JOB WELL DONE, UNTIL IT REACHES LINE 110. SOMETIMES IT LOOPS, SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T, BUT ANYWAY IT MAY LOOP FROM 70 TO 110. THIS IS ACTUALLY A WHILE-LOOP THAT WILL STOP AFTER "K" IS EQUAL TO "O" (DON'T ASK ME WHY). NEXT, IF "I" IS EQUAL TO "S", THEN IT'S AN ARMSTRONG NUMBER, SO IT WILL BE PRINTED ON THE MONITOR. OTHERWISE, IT WILL BE SKIPPED AND CHECK THE NEXT NUMBER.

I don't think code blocks are working correctly after a bulleted list

  • one
  • two

    This is indented with 4 spaces, but isn't showing as a code block

Paragraph

another code block 

  • point.
    more on that point.

    some code for that point
    
some pointless code.

will the "hai" in the beginning be removed?

Original: Hai, will the "hai" in the beginning be removed

Yes!

Ref: Should 'Hi', 'thanks,' taglines, and salutations be removed from posts?

I find it hard to believe, with the amount of rep that you have, that you would consider simply linking to another question is all it takes to make a good answer?

If your answer to question A can be used in question B, that suggests that B is a duplicate of A and can be closed as such.

If they are not duplicates, then you should be answering the question. Tailor your code to answer the actual question asked.

It has been well established that answers which contain nothing more than links will likely be deleted. They may be converted to comments, or they may not. There are plenty of related discussions here.

This should be code:

$VAR1 = { 'P5' => {   'E' => '06' => [100, 200, 95] 'B' => '23' => [20, 1000, 05, 30]   },   'P2' => {         'C' => '24' => [18, 23, 2300, 3456]   },   'P1' => {         'A' => '12' => [24, 25, 3200, 5668]         'D' => '15' => [168]       } };

I am a crazy editing person.

Third try.. fourth.

Verified through attempts to revert this post that I am unable to do so via mobile. selecting the original in the list has no effect at all.

trying to go beyond the edit grace period to add another item to the list...

I am able to see the edits in the list, but I can't do anything with them.

Test for edit comment within first grace period.

Edit 1, with edit summary
Edit 2, with edit summary
Edit 3, no edit summary
Edit 4, with edit summary
Edit 5, with edit summary
Edit 6, after 9 minutes, with edit summary
Edit 7, after 9 minutes, with edit summary, overwriting previous summary
Edit 8, after 10 minutes, no edit summary

Editing within grace period no longer remembers previous edit reason?

Trying to figure out the proper way to format italic_NONITALICFORWARDSLASH_italic with no spaces:

*macro*/*conditional* - macro/conditional
*macro*\/*conditional* - macro/*conditional*
*macro*//*conditional* - macro//conditional
**macro*/*conditional** - macro*/*conditional

This is already done here:
You need HTML-formatting <i></i> or <b></b>
<i>macro</i>/<i>conditional</i> - macro/conditional

edit: it is pointless, they are escaping &lt; and &gt; correctly

but well, I managed to find a way to prevent them to stripe off non supported tags :)
