Why isn't Date Sudhir Baban's answer (screen dump below) displayed as code even though it seems to be formatted correctly - 4 spaces indent for each line?

Whoops, I fixed it... – jjnguy May 26 '11 at 16:51
Odd, I rolled back to his original revision, and it was still fixed. – jjnguy May 26 '11 at 16:53
I think there used to be a bug when a post started with code. – mmyers May 26 '11 at 16:58
@jjnguy: perhaps the HTML is cached somewhere and any old post needs to be refreshed to display correctly after the fix? – Peter Mortensen May 26 '11 at 17:31
Yeah, I think that's right. (@mmy, @ Peter) – jjnguy May 26 '11 at 18:06
Yes, the HTML is created from the Markdown at submission/rollback time; the revisions store only the Markdown. So if a bug is fixed in the Markdown parser, this doesn't reflect until the post is edited. – balpha May 26 '11 at 19:12
