Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

In normal html I just show this character - ®

How to do it on SE sites?

I see the problem now. I was trying to do it in a quote. As in quoting another source. That seems to cause an issue for me.

But without using the char codes and pasting in the character it seems to work.

&reg does not work here in quotes but ® does

"& # 174" seems to work -> ®

&reg works here?


In my defense - I'm just a C++ developer - not an html/css jscript webby guy.

You do it like this .. ® – Aiden Bell Oct 21 '10 at 6:08
If you want to add the ® symbol after each brand, language etc... you are ahead of a lot of pain :-) – ringø Oct 21 '10 at 6:28
I voted to close as well. I couldn;t delete it. I th ought there was a specific issue about markdown in the quoted text. I guess I am just not so good at the internets – tim Oct 21 '10 at 15:19
Internets 1 - Tim 0, Better luck next time. :P – jjnguy Oct 21 '10 at 15:21

In a quote, &reg doesn't work but ® does work (at least in the preview pane). – Jon Seigel Oct 21 '10 at 17:09

You can use HTML entities:

© - ©
® - ®
™ - &trade; (or <sup>TM</sup> if you're hacky)

Of course, you can just copy them from elsewhere and paste here:

© ® ™

Some of us prefer raw, unadorned ALT codes. – Mark C Oct 21 '10 at 6:08
