If I enter the text
<firstname.lastname@example.org> on my profile page, it does not appear. Is this part of Markdown supported by SE?
I saw this on Markdown's page:
Automatic links for email addresses work similarly, except that Markdown will also perform a bit of randomized decimal and hex entity-encoding to help obscure your address from address-harvesting spambots. For example, Markdown will turn this:
into something like this:
<a href="mail ... m">ad ... m</a>
which will render in a browser as a clickable link to “email@example.com”.
