Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

I happen to like the <kbd> tag for showing when keys should be pressed, but I can never remember it on the very few occasions that it would actually be useful. Having it in the help file would meant that I don't need to find another question that has the tag in use, and try to copy it.

I know that some people do crazy things with this tag, but in general I think that it is useful.

I went to the markdown help page all ready to post a haughty reply with freehand circles, and discovered much to my surprise that indeed this tag is not mentioned. Bravo sir! – Ether Jan 23 '10 at 22:10

Be careful. If it was widely publicised we'd have the same situation on the other sites that we have here on meta meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1939/… – ChrisF Jan 23 '10 at 22:12
    
@ChrisF: You could have that problem, but I doubt that you really would. That thread was a special I think, as per the comment on this answer: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1939/… – Paul Wagland Jan 23 '10 at 22:21

It's in the FAQ along with the other tags SOFU allows: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1777/… And that FAQ topic is already linked to from Editing Help. – Shog9 Jan 24 '10 at 1:58

I laugh uncontrollably every time I see Pesto's castle creation. But, this would definitely be of use on Super User. – Jarrod Dixon Jan 24 '10 at 10:42

I feel like this should be status-nobody-seems-to-care... – nhinkle Jun 20 '11 at 7:48
