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

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:

    • 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();

Hello and welcome to StackOverflow. Please take some time to read the help page, especially the sections named "What topics can I ask about here?" and "What types of questions should I avoid asking?". And more importantly, please read the Stack Overflow question checklist. You might also want to learn about Minimal, Complete, and Verifiable Examples. – Kevin Jul 24 '15 at 13:50
    
It looks like you want us to write some code for you. While many users are willing to produce code for a coder in distress, they usually only help when the poster has already tried to solve the problem on their own. A good way to demonstrate this effort is to include the code you've written so far, example input (if there is any), the expected output, and the output you actually get (console output, tracebacks, etc.). The more detail you provide, the more answers you are likely to receive. Check the FAQ and How to Ask. – Kevin Jul 24 '15 at 14:11

@humn instead of a rollback, you can perform an edit with the exact same contents as before your edit (title, in your case) and assuming you do it within the 5 minutes grace period, it will show only a single revision with "[Edit removed during grace period]" - instead of having two revisions. – Shadow Wizard Apr 10 at 10:12

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.

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.

This is a test for strikethrough and the <dl> tag.

<dl>
  <dt>Coffee</dt>
  <dd>Black hot drink</dd>
  <dt>Milk</dt>
  <dd>White cold drink</dd>
</dl>

Renders as:

Coffee
Black hot drink
Milk
White cold drink

That is, the tags are allowed, but they are not formatted well by SE.

Desired format is:

@Awesome think you found a bug, the CSS rules remove margin and padding from the tags, hence break their usage. Fix is trivial, so better start a bug report. – Shadow Wizard Aug 23 '15 at 7:15
    
@ShadowWizard, I was just testing. I've never seen a need for <dl> in an SE post and don't want to bother with a bug report for this. There's a cr*pton of other things (all upvoted) I'd like to see first. (<table>s for example) – Awesome Poodles Aug 23 '15 at 7:18

Too bad the vertical spacing's a little off though...


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>

The original standard for mailto: links, RFC 1738, says this:

A mailto URL takes the form:

mailto:<rfc822-addr-spec>

where <rfc822-addr-spec> is (the encoding of an) addr-spec, as specified in RFC 822 [1].

Under that definition, no proper name could be included.

But the mailto: section of RFC 1738 has been superseded by RFC 2368, which allows (among other things, including predefined subject lines) for an RFC 822 mailbox specification—which includes a proper name.

TL;DR: mailto:Fred Foo<foo@example.com> should work (and does, for me; you may have to encode the space, i.e., mailto:Fred%20Foo<foo@example.com>).

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
