Revision history [back]

Some progress: though the triple-backtick syntax for block code does not seem to work, the four-space syntax does. So if I prepend four spaces in front of every line below, I get

echo 'this is code'

The shortcut CTRL-K also apparently works for the same purpose.

Block quotes are just plain markdown, prepending > symbols in front of every line one wants to quote, as in

first quoted line

and the second

The question stands of whether it is possible to peek at others' post formatting by quoting the posts via this board's interface; I still do not see how to do that..
