What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 145 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
  • test suspected bugs with the editor

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();

Answer for Popular Demand so my tests don't clog up other people's global inboxes.


Looks like this answer is still needed.

Bare: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagger_(typography) ← doesn't work
%29: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagger_(typography%29 ← link functions but looks ugly/wrong


From Please improve the auto-linking to allow square and round brackets

For example, this won't work with the linking feature:

If I try and [link it][1] this is the result.

1Just kidding. Markdown tables would be great. As would be footnotes, now that I think about it. Or even just small text so I don't have to abuse <sub>

Bow down before my links!

Each character in the above sentence, including spaces and puntuation, is a valid link. My link density RULES ALL! :D

This is a test To see if this works.

This is a test to see if it is possible to hide hyperlinks.

This is a test [to see if nested hyperlinks](http://www.example.com/) are acceptable. This doesn't seem to be the case.

Can I get text to properly flow around images? We'll the raw HTML suggested in the editing help doesn't seem to work. And the regular way to embed images doesn't flow correctly, so I'm not sure what to do. Ask a meta-question, I guess. enter image description here

Does this still work?

This is without a language::

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

This is with language: lang-sh:

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

This is with language: lang-c:

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

This is with language: lang-xml:

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

This is with language: lang-none:

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

This is with language: lang-i-am-a-banana...

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

... which falls back to language: lang-default

# comment me
echo "sjngm"
var="foo"
num=80
for line in (`cat bar.txt`) do
done

this is a link

This is a line with some code
This is another line with some code
This is a link with code in it
This is more code

This CSS overlapping is really starting to piss me off.

This is strike through
This is also strike through
As is this
---How about chat formatting?---

Does it work in a Link?

<link>

code with \embedded`` backticks`

See Can we get rid of the default text "enter image description here"? for details


As an aside: Chrome and Safari would show it too, but only if it can fit the text. Both do actually increase the width of the image to match the length of the text, but still won't show the text unless that width is also explicitly specified... So: that requires one to increase the default dimensions a bit, like <img src="http://not" width="184" height="48" alt="enter image description here"> does show it. Not sure if that's specific to the Stack Exchange CSS? (Like maybe some other dimensions from the SE CSS are used, when image dimensions are missing.)

![alt text](http://not)  
<img src="http://not" height="48" alt="alt text">  
<img src="http://not" width="44" height="48" alt="alt text">

![enter image description here](http://not)
<img src="http://not" height="48" alt="enter image description here">
<img src="http://not" width="184" height="48" alt="enter image description here">

alt text alt text alt text

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

Odd.

In Chrome on my Mac the above looks like:

Missing images in Chrome

In my Safari:

Missing images in Safari

And in my Firefox shows no image placeholders at all.
