This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

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

  • 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
