Is there anyway I can use underline styling in the Community Site?
I'm just testing this now. You see the strange thing is that when I use underscores, the preview tab does not show the text in between underscores as underlined.
If I try to put <u>the text</u> between "
<u></u>" tags, it then shows up underlined from the Preview tab. However, after posting it it looks like the content doesn't stay underlined.
Steve, brought up a good point that Markdown implementations are supposed to honor [X]HTML tags. This is from Markdown's developer: https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#html
The Markdown Cheatsheet on the right side of this input area correctly converts the "
<u></u>", so it would be nice if there was anyway for folks using the site to use underline Markdown styling.
Hmm.. this is interesting… I see this section at the bottom of the Markdown Basics page. It says that wrapping the content in "
<blockquote></blockquote>" should make the page to validate under XHTML 1.0 Strict. I wonder if that would allow me to underline some text content in some way.
<u>underlined text is serious business, my friend.</u>

Well, that seems to work in preview. I wonder if using the regular "
>" to create quotes in markdown would cause any difference? Well let's see now…
Yupp, seems to work as well in the preview. We'll have to see what happens after this gets posted however.
And most importantly, would I be able to use other styling choices if I were to use blockquotes? Let's see what happens if I try a few more styling tags:
<u>This may or may not be underlined after it gets posted.</u>
This may or may not be bold after it gets posted.
This may or may not be italicized after it gets posted.
- this could be a bullet-point after it gets posted. Or not.
- This could be an enumerated point or just something odd-looking.
How about headings??
What about headings?
Woah, woah.. calm down there, big guy.
Sorry about that.
Hmm.. I wonder how strange this might look after it's posted.
