"And your periods and commas belong inside the quotation marks."

Not if you're a programmer -- see the hackers' dictionary. If the period wasn't in your quote, it would be inaccurate to quote it.

For example, telling someone that a command is "cd ../." would be more confusing if you didn't realise that the final period was a full-stop, and unrelated to the thing you need to type.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
