You should use code tags (<c>like this</c>)around preformatted things like code and error messages, and paragraph breaks to start new paragraphs, like this:<p>

You can see a list of those (and more) at the bottom of the preview window.

<b>Note:</b> You can go back and fix (update) your message if you need to. However, if you <i>do</i> update your node, you should add a note to your node letting people know that you changed it. You do this so that if anyone replied to your original node, then people reading the thread can make sense of it. Otherwise some replies will look totally wrong.


Update: Added "update" information, as suggested by (the somewhat impolite) roboticus.

Update: Added example formatting tags for bold and italics just because...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
