I just posted the question Using collcell package with csvsimple, or datatool. After posting it looks like the formatting of the two error messages is not identical:

actual post

But, when I go to edit it what I see in the preview is identical preview for the second case, but not for the first case:

  • Great question. :) The same happens with the spoiler syntax, as seen in this answer of mine. – Paulo Cereda Nov 14 '12 at 22:23
  • Looking on the source the bug in my opinion is in the edit preview. – Speravir Nov 15 '12 at 0:55
  • +1, even though it doesn't look like you're using markdown in a way that it is supposed/expected to be used?! – doncherry Nov 15 '12 at 1:37
  • @doncherry: You mean in terms of using the >? What is the official way of quoting errors? – Peter Grill Nov 15 '12 at 1:39
  • @Speravir: Yep, I thought it best to leave so that the SE programmers can use it as a test case to see if the updates fix the display in preview mode. – Peter Grill Nov 15 '12 at 1:41
  • If you paste the error as is, select all of it, then click the code markup button, and then the block quote button, you get this: i.stack.imgur.com/IfvbT.png – doncherry Nov 15 '12 at 1:44

    @doncherry: Wow, you may find this hard to believe but I have never noticed the block quote button? :-) Have always added the > manually.. Now that I know, that I can ask even more questions as it will now take me less time. :-) Thanks. – Peter Grill Nov 15 '12 at 1:48

    Glad to be of help :). Another tip, in case you didn't know: You can also use Ctrl+K for code and Ctrl+Q for block quotes. – doncherry Nov 15 '12 at 1:55
  • @doncherry: Excellent... So much faster... – Peter Grill Nov 15 '12 at 1:58

Interesting edge case, and one where various Markdown implementations disagree. That leaves the call to me, and I think the server-side version did the more correct thing here, so I've changed the preview to behave the same way. This fix is in the next build of the sites.
