What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

Stack Exchange sites display the text of questions and answers nicely (i.e. with formatting) from their databases. What technologies are used to display the formatted text? I program with C#; can the same results be achieved with that language?

StackOverflow uses an own version of Markdown. I have started using Markdown.NET for a couple of my own projects.
