I posted an answer on Stack Overflow and it's one of my first few answers. I entered almost the entire paragraph from this page that starts with "If n_1" and ended at "and its depth is 0." as well as an image and then another paragraph below.

When I tried to bold a few sentences within the quote and posted, many sentences were lost. My post is here: What is the difference between tree depth and height?

This is what I'm seeing when I edit and it looks right in the editor but not the preview.

I'm using Mac OS X El Capitan and Google Chrome.

I'm aware the subscripts mean italics but kinda determined that it wasn't my issue. First I tried deleting the post pictured and making a new post without the subscripts, but the same thing was happening, so I never saved that edited post, and just undeleted the post pictured.

  • Note, if you want that image to show up it should be ![Figure 7.2.1][1] – Cai Apr 13 '17 at 8:22
  • You can also do subscripts with <sub> tags and superscripts with <sup> tags (but not in comments). I've edited for you :) – Laurel Apr 14 '17 at 3:11

I think it assumed the part beginning with <k to be part of an HTML tag, and removed it. I have edited the post, replacing < with the HTML entity &lt;, which should be left alone by the parser.

  • Thank you for fixing that! – ashtree Apr 13 '17 at 21:49
