Thank you for this definitively un-hot answer. –  James McNellis Aug 26 '10 at 22:31

Well, I know Sam 'Waffles' Saffron was working on this feature a bit.

We were discussing this query on the data explorer. Although, I'm not sure which numbers he came up with.

@devin: But this answer is shorter (286 chars) and is still hot! –  kennytm Aug 26 '10 at 18:23
I'M SO HOT!!!!! –  jjnguy Aug 26 '10 at 18:38
@Kenny, well, if you could links and markup, it is over 300. –  jjnguy Aug 26 '10 at 18:40
@jjnguy: Markup is already counted. Without markup it is 177. –  kennytm Aug 26 '10 at 19:00
@Kenny That'd be markdown being counted, actually. Markup would be the resultant HTML tags that are used. –  Grace Note Aug 26 '10 at 19:02
Oops...Fine...but I'm still hot. –  jjnguy Aug 26 '10 at 19:17
