Screwing up the "less than" symbol

or the nth time just now, I used the 'less than' symbol to mean 'less than', not as the start of some HTML. The preview shows < as < but in the posted comment, it is treated as HTML and just screws up the post. Preview here also shows < as < The < in this post so far have been entered as & l t ; but here is a sample: 15 days <18 days and using the dread symbol itself 15 days <18 days Let's see what we get. I just noticed that on the preview page here, all the & l t ; in the Description: box were changed to <

Line Break Issues in "Preview"

It's pretty annoying that inserting carriage returns shows line breaks as typed in the "preview" window, but the final result is breakless (after all, what's the point of the preview?). I've had unpredictable results manually adding "BR" tags and "P" tags...they seem to sporadically interact with the typed carriage returns and yield vast white space. If anyone can point me to a workaround, I'd be appreciative. But, really, it'd be fitting if postings posted per the preview, no?

I can haz Markdown?

Can we have Markdown? It's so neat. I subconsciously compose everything in it and it's now a slight pain writing actual HTML tags. For instance, you can do a quote by starting the first line of a paragraph "> " instead of having to wrap it in blockquote/close blockquote tags. It's way easier to do useful things.

Odd Display Bug?

Anyone else see a weird display bug with this comment? In both IE and Firefox, the "posted by" line (and only the posted by line) for that comment (and only that comment) is not indented at all. I'm not familiar with the Metafilter code, but when I view source it looks like all the rest of the comments.

Are numeric HTML entities allowed or not?

I found this previous MeTa post, which states why numeric html entities are not allowed. However, there seem to be no named entities for the musical notes. How did this happen then?

Change double hyphen to dash.

Feel free to put me in my place if this is way too trivial an issue, but I've been posting more recently and can't help but notice the little tip below the posting box, and—I know this is trivial, sorry—can we replace the two hyphens with a dash? kthx.

No officer, I'm not small. I'm TALL!

Keeping in mind that the restriction on using html to make the words "posted by" small in comments may not be obvious to all site users, could the error message returned by the post comment action be more informative? The current error message reads "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again." Also, could relevant text be added to the How do I use HTML in my posts? FAQ if you please?

code stripping

It's pretty minor, but an & in the post title turns into 'amp' in the url. example.

What's with the italics?

Why is all of MetaFilter in italics all of a sudden? The first two posts on the page are fine, but then everything afterwards is in italics for me, even the posts from yesterday that weren't in italics earlier this morning... I've had a few drinks tonight, but not that many drinks...

href... slash... a.... dammit!

Is it just me, or did my autoformatting buttons vanish with my last Firefox update (I assume this is the cause, as the two coincided)? If I have to start hand-coding hyperlinks again I will probably just go into an unresponsive fugue state instead.

No, I didn't mean to do that TWICE.

Weird number translation issues? Maybe? I don't know, but when I posted to the "Crazy Congressmen" thread I know that the second time I used this link: http://www.metafilter.com/58687/FlatEarthers-No-FixedEarthers because I pasted it IN the comment box and then did the HTML around it. But it BECAME a link to the thread that I was commenting in. What? Or maybe I am totally and completely insane.

Why can't I add a hyperlink in MeTa?

In trying to flag this post, http://ask.metafilter.com/57197/Dont-Worry-Be-Happy as the worst sort of existential Chatfilter/guideline buster, I realized there isn't a 'link' feature in MetaTalk. And I am an HTML cretin. I expect this is intentional, or I'm missing something obvious.

Ex-Image Formatting

Since you're already stripping out the image tag code (like on this post), why not either change it to a link or drop the whole line entirely? The code that's left is unsightly.

Does the html posting toolbar show up in AskeMe using Safari?

I suppose this must come up from time to time, but I couldnt' find it searching... I was just viewing AskMe through Safari and when I went to add a comment, the little toolbar for bolding/italcizing/linkifying text wasn't there. I see this is the same on the other pages as well. What up with that?

Are HTML entities allowed?

Quick question about HTML entities: are they no longer accepted in comments? I've been trying to use em-dashes like so: [ampersand] [pound sign] 8212 [semi-colon] and this has worked fine until recently. But lately, I've left a trail of comments with ugly "8212;"s all over the place, as if the [ampersand] and [pound sign] were stripped off before post (but after the inline preview).

Get rid of images on the grey and the blue.

The inline image debate revisited: I know this has been discussed before, and I know that images are sometimes useful in AskMe, and I know that I may have had a sense-of-humour bypass... but isn't it time we got rid of them in MeTa and MeFi? I don't think that "bloke being shagged by a robot" gif adds anything to the site at all. Or the "this is not an appropriate front page post" one. Or the "elephant poo" one. Or any of the other pictures in the thread below this one.

How do I properly create links?

MeFi link filter: I'm a self-proclaimed newbie and have unsuccessfully tried to answer my question by skimming the FAQs and searching the site.

How do I compose links so that a mouseover displays the title of the link and the related URL, as it does in the following posting?

How do I make a multi-link post?

I find the posting interface *completely* baffling despite trying for quite a while on a few occasions. I can only figure out how to post one link, whereas most posts are multi-link. How do I learn how to do a complete post with more than one link?

Two little html touches

Two little html touches can really help make complex FPPs much better. I am convinced that more people would use them if they knew how. Any chance of mentioning these to prospective posters on the "New Post Page," if not actually incorporating them into the MeFi menus?

UserAgent string checking for helper buttons.

Matt: Can you disable checking the UA for determining if the little link/bold/em helper buttons show up by the posting box? Just so you know, it works fine with Opera when I have the user agent masked as IE.
