Markdown preview does not support link definition names that are the same as Array function names

I had a problem creating this post on Stack Overflow; the preview stopped working at the end. And when I now edit it, the preview is blank. And before it complained about N.replace. It seems to be related to my use of dots in the label for links.

I'm uncertain what information might be needed, though if you are able to edit others posts on SO, you can follow the above link and choose edit; you might see what I'm trying to say :) – azatoth Jun 5 '10 at 22:22

1 Answer 1

It's because you've got:

[map]: http://api.jquery.com/map/
[get]: http://api.jquery.com/get/
[text]: http://api.jquery.com/text/

as your URL links. Replace map with 1 in the body of your post and you'll see the post miraculously appear.

I've fixed up all three links now.

meta.stackoverflow.com/editing-help seems to support the original syntax; or might it be only the preview that chokes? or might I've misunderstood the syntax? – azatoth Jun 5 '10 at 22:39
@azatoth - I never spotted that on that page before. The links worked in the post so I guess it's just the preview that's broken. – ChrisF Jun 5 '10 at 22:42
