After the note about HTML element limitations, I wanted to experiment:

|left align|center align|right align|none/ default align|
:-|:-:|-:|-
|[markdown link][1]|HTML Image:<br><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/Gjhk6.jpg" width="100" title="juicy orange">|<pre>pre tag</pre>|triple backticks just yield ```code spans```
`backtick inline code, with no added breaks`|<code>html code tag</code>|<pre>pre tag with<br>line<br>break tags</pre>|<pre>pre tag with<br>line<br>break tags</pre>

<sub>([SE allowed HTML tags refresher][2])</sub>

It generally seems, on the surface, to play fairly nice right now! 

Is there any reason this support would foreseeably change in the future?  
Or can this be counted upon as a feature?
