No, I think we have said everything. Initially I just posted an idea with a very open mindset, as a game to see more proposals, because I found Daniel's ideas excellent. Instead all I got were answers a bit rude, at least this how I received them, and you came last, sorry. Not a single positive comment, I guess my idea was really bad. Many people here are programmers or skilled in computer science, which is excellent. Hence, those discussions based on rhetorics with comparisons, extrapolations, generalisations, to prove by A+B that someone is right and the someone else is wrong. But I'm not a computer and I know that I'm not always consistent or logical (actually nobody is). And probably over sensitive sometimes as I don't master this language with enough subtilities. Let's close this here now, there is no problem.

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>

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

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
