I can confirm that originally the Snake was not displayed in the diagram that Jörg posted. I looked at the page source, and the diagram was a direct link to the diagram generator, which did contain the S in the intended square in the CGI parameter. But no show... But now it magically appeared, with the same browser (FireFox). There must have been something temporarily wrong on the server, such that the server-side script could not find the Snake image file to compose the entire image.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>
