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

The item 6 of my answer about lex/yacc is not correct.

I wrote:

  1. six

But (like here) it insists in one.

Also, the items 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3 do not work. I didn't want to blockquote. My first attempt was to use code sample. It did not work. Then I moved on to sub-itens. Not ok. My third option was blockquote, but I'm unhappy with it. At least it looks like code.

As for the nested list part, see this question – Michael Mrozek Apr 5 '11 at 1:14
Please, do not edit it anymore! I'm afraid it became CW. My efforts to earn some points would be in vain. Thanks for the tip. I'll try better in other question. – Dr Beco Apr 5 '11 at 1:17
If you keep signing your name twice, people will edit it out. So you can avoid that edit towards CW if you don't do that. – random Apr 5 '11 at 1:27
@random I was not going to comment this until you got +1. See, I thank you for the tip. What I don't agree is that it sounds like you support the idea of CW as punishment. CW should be a great thing, not a punishment for a guy who wrote his name and other mistakes (and a lot of typos, I do) in his/her post. That said, thank you for the tip. – Dr Beco Apr 5 '11 at 19:17
CW isn't punishment. But when a post is floated back to the front page as much as it might from edits, it then is thrown open to a community ownership. When you edit, do as much in one go instead of tiny bumps. – random Apr 5 '11 at 19:20

I fixed it for you, you had too much separation in the text in 5 and so the markdown couldn't be parsed correctly (I think)
