Attempts to trigger the "unformatted code in question" bug on save.

Don't run this snippet. It contains a virus!

<marquee>Influenza</marquee>

In any case, my advice is to avoid marquees like the plague.

If you can see there's a tag over there without hovering, then you gotta be careful!

print('hello world')

print('hello world')

So <code>...</code> is equivalent to just simply using

`...`

But like:

print('hello world')

Is different.

That spoiler formatting has been biting me. Time to see how it works.

First up:

markdown lists in a spoiler:

Formatting:

>! 1. one
2. two

Result:

! 1. one 2. two

Formatting:

>! 1. one
>! 2. two

Result:

1. one 2. two

HTML lists in spoiler:

Inline

Formatting:

>! <ul><li>one</li><li>two</li><li>three</li></ul>

Result:

  • one
  • two
  • three

Not-inline HTML lists in spoiler 1:

Formatting:

>!<ul>
    <li>one</li>
    <li>two</li>
    <li>three</li>
</ul>

Result:

!

  • one
  • two
  • three

Non-inline lists in spoiler 2:

Formatting:

>!<ul>
>!    <li>one</li>
>!    <li>two</li>
>!    <li>three</li>
>!</ul>

Result:

  • one
  • two
  • three

How to put a plain hashtag (#) in a post

When you type a # at the beginning of a line in a post and try to put text immediately after it in a post using markdown, it creates text in a header:

Text

If you want actually put a # in the post, you must use a backslash to escape it:

#Text

Here is the plain text for the heading text:

#Text

and for the text with an actual hashtag:

\#Text

Does ``` formatting work to make a code block, like a four-space indent?

foo bar

Apparently not.

(But see the code of this paragraph or the heading, for what consecutive `s actually do.)

    The backticks are for inline code, whatever is between two of those is formatted as code, but without prettify. It also works in comments. Sep 28, 2017 at 9:28
  • @ShaWizDowArd Yes. I assumed it would not work to create a code block, but wanted to test the claim that it did--which is apparently true only for some other dialects of Markdown--just in case I had missed something big in that post. Sep 28, 2017 at 9:35
