What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

If we have some inline code, marked up with grave accents, it works properly in the question body, even when there's something right after the accent:

Examples:
I want to find Nth character in a string.
Don't use Collections, those fancy Collections just suck.
I want to use Nth N in my code.

But, if we have exactly same thing in a comment, the formatting falls apart (see the comments).

@Justin: I believe it's not. Look at the third example, does feel like a bug, doesn't it? –  GSerg Aug 6 '10 at 20:55
    
@GSerg, well, it is sub-optimal performance. But I doubt they will look into it any more... –  jjnguy Aug 6 '10 at 20:57

@Justin: Can I have your 100 rep? –  Dexter Aug 6 '10 at 21:12
    
I lose...It's a good thing we didn't shake on it. –  jjnguy Aug 6 '10 at 21:30
    
@jjnguy It would appear it's now status-completed. –  GSerg Apr 30 '13 at 8:07
    
@GSerg it does indeed. I've re-tagged it. Thanks. –  jjnguy Apr 30 '13 at 14:32

We only support a subset of markdown in comments, and the rules are stricter about what will and won't work.

Are you sure it's not [status-by-design] ? Otherwise I lose a bet... :P And declining a bug doesn't make as much sense as declaring it by-design. –  jjnguy Aug 6 '10 at 21:30
