Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Reading through this page, and one of the articles prev/next links weren't linking. Went to fix it, but finally decided it was correct (or at least consistent with other working posts), so I assume it is a bug in the markdown.

Part 3's prev and next links do work (for reference).

Part 4's prev and next links do not work.

Also note that the (presumably) JS preview for Part 3 shows it not working, but when generated, it does work.

@sarnold I see that is triggering the "can't mix 2 different kinds of links in a comment" behavior. I'll ask Ben about that. – Jeff Atwood Jun 15 '11 at 7:44
@Jeff, just knowing that will save me from a handful of silly edits. Thanks! :) – sarnold Jun 15 '11 at 7:46
@sarnold: It's going to work again after the next build. – balpha Jun 15 '11 at 17:32
