Please do not edit this question to "fix" the formatting issues

This questions exists so that I can link to it from a bug report. AskBot purports to support Markdown, but Markdown says that links should be formatted like this:

And while this renders correctly in the preview, it does not render correctly when actually viewing the question.

I should be able to include arbitrary characters inside a code block, but again, while this renders correctly in the preview:

myvariable = <some value>

This gets horribly corrupted when actually rendered. So there is some weird different between the Markdown processor used to generate the preview and the Markdown processor used to generate the actual question.

I also sometimes see excerpt of posts, answers and comments instead of the full text, which I can only see when I click "Edit".

I've had the same issue as DanielS on a question I posted. Very strange

If you have run into this problem yourself, click on the "affects me too" link in the bug report (you will probably need a launchpad account for this) https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-community/+bug/1271200/+affectsmetoo .
