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

On this question, Build a list with JSON and jQuery, even though the poster's original presentation may not have been the most helpful, I don't agree with the editor arbitrarily deciding that the OP wanted divs. I don't see anywhere where he said anything of that sort.

The editor obviously has more rep than me so I don't feel comfortable just reverting his edits, but I feel like I should. What can I do?

It was actually in the original revision text, but SO strips out certain HTML tags for safety reasons.

I see, how can I get the revision hash? – citizen conn Jul 20 '11 at 21:49
@citizen On the post, click "edited xx mins ago", then click source on the header for the revision you want to see. – waiwai933 Jul 20 '11 at 21:52
@citizen: You'll also see the original text exactly as the user entered it when you click the "edit" link. This is presumably what the original editor did, noticed that there was unescaped HTML code, and formatted it properly. – Cody Gray Jul 21 '11 at 3:42
