Would not say it is a bug.. Just not implemented. Comments only allow []( ) types no? –  phwd Mar 20 '11 at 3:56
    
@Philippe Yeah, but when a mod converts an answer to a comment, I think it's a case that should be handled better. –  Anna Lear Mar 20 '11 at 3:59

Too bad you can't edit the comment like you can an answer. –  jmort253 Mar 20 '11 at 4:21
    
@jmort253 Sarcasm? –  Anna Lear Mar 20 '11 at 4:43
    
@Anna - Lol, no. I'm kind of a neat freak and hate seeing blatant typos ;) It could be a nice feature to have. Or we could just learn to deal with the minor things like that and stop being so OCD :) –  jmort253 Mar 20 '11 at 4:44
    
@jmort253 Moderators can edit comments, so it's not a huge deal. :) –  Anna Lear Mar 20 '11 at 4:46
    
@Anna - Did you see my answer below? I guess I'd been doing it the hard way all this time :) lol, duh! I guess my method is only creative if you're a little slow :) Now I get the sarcasm comment :) I forgot moderators can see edit on everyone's comments. –  jmort253 Mar 20 '11 at 4:50

1 Answer 1

You need to break out your "Moderator edits comment" card and play that on the table.

Not everything is going to convert well when dropping from answer block to comment line.
