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

Possible Duplicates:
Allow HTML tags in comments
How does the comment system and comments work?

Exactly what the title says, I know there's a question about this already I just can't find the sucker.

It's Jeff's answer on meta.stackexchange.com/questions/6407/… -- which is why it's hard to find. I actually went through Jeff's answers, sorted by "recent", because I knew he edited it around April 1st. – balpha Apr 14 '10 at 15:13
    
May be this should be part of the [FAQ] questions? – perbert Apr 14 '10 at 15:40
    
@json: I think the edits we made are probably sufficient (thanks, btw). This question will be closed, but should hang around so the question in the title is searchable. – Jon Seigel Apr 14 '10 at 15:47
    
@Jon: exactly, keeping this would make it possible to appear prominently when asking a new question and when searching and adding the FAQ tag would give it some officialness. – perbert Apr 14 '10 at 16:00

@json: To put [faq] on this question would require a reopen, a cleanup of both the question and your answer, an edit of the existing FAQ entry to break out that content (which, IMO, doesn't make sense)... I think it's enough to keep the existing FAQ entry updated, and maybe clean up this question a little bit. – Jon Seigel Apr 14 '10 at 16:17

I believe this is a dupe It is! It is a duppy quest!, but it's:

  • Italics *Italics* Also _Also_
  • Bold **Bold** Also __Also__
  • ***Bold italics are not allowed*** ***Bold italics are not allowed***
  • Code `Code`
  • links [links](http://meta.stackoverflow.com/ "Meta")

For a more complete explanation, you can see the relevant part of the FAQ.

Hmm... didn't know that. The FAQ should probably be updated. – Jon Seigel Apr 14 '10 at 15:15
    
I have updated the FAQ to reflect this. – Jon Seigel Apr 14 '10 at 15:20

@Jon, really, I had to upvote that comment. The irony is palpable. – perbert Apr 14 '10 at 15:28
