    Did you intend the majority of your posting to be in bold italics?
      Yes, I did.

        Having most of it in bold makes it painful to read, and increases the chance that many folks will just not bother to do so.

        Bold text is useful for making individual words (or a small group - like a heading) stand out against the background, but making it all bold is just makes it a pain to read.

      Apparently he did. Each of the five list items is formatted like so:

      <p><b>1)<i> ... </p></b>

      In my browser (Chrome) at least, it appears that the </b> is ignored because it's outside the <p> block.

      The needed </i> is completely missing.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Even if your intent was to have most of your post in bold italic, there are still problems with your HTML. And leaving them in a post reminds me of a kid running off with his shoes untied, in his eagerness to play with his friends.

    PerlMonks provides safeguards that I find helpful:

    • Visit Display Settings and make the following settings:
      • Enforce proper nesting of HTML: Checked.
      • HTML Error Reporting Level: 3
      • HTML Error Reporting During Preview: 4
    • Visit User Settings and make the following settings:
      • Turn Hints Off: Unchecked.
      • No Forced Preview: Unchecked.

    With those settings you will see the most common HTML errors identified when you hit preview. Then you will have plenty of opportunity to fix the mistakes before committing your document to public view. Even after it's been posted, you'll continue to see the nag-tags until you've taken the time to edit your post fixing HTML errors.

    In that way, when someone suggests your HTML is broken you will not be unaware or unable to identify where it needs to be fixed.

      Thanks to luis.roca's great help, I have fixed the HTML problems in my post.

        Like fuck you have. Please try again.

        Fixes have been made. Still a little sad that he doesn't know how to make a <ol> list...
