Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Markdown accepts the <del> tag, which is very convenient if you want to remove a word, sentence, or paragraph but want to do this in a non-confusing manner. But many times you want to replace a word (say) with a new, more appropriate, word. And if you want to do this in a non-confusing manner, you need the <ins> tag as well. But Markdown doesn't allow this tag. Please change!

It would be nice, but what do you think <ins> should look like? Green color? Imagine the spam of colors, it doesn't suit SO. If you want to add some emphasis on what's new I guess you could use bold and/or italic. – BrunoLM Sep 25 '10 at 1:29

@BrunoLM: a slight grayish (#222) bold? – perbert Sep 25 '10 at 4:17
    
@perbert: Testing here... #888 bold seems ok. It would be a grayed bold. I'm not sure if I liked it at all :P. But I guess I wouldn't mind seen that around. #222 bold and bold looks like the same :P – BrunoLM Sep 25 '10 at 4:38
