  • Emoji! How?

  • Emoji!

    Come again?

  • There are some emoticons in the UNICODE standard now, but then again the forum has smilies too ... ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Does anybody know if there's a way to make a textual tooltip like with "<abbr></abbr>" on MyOpera - other than messing with the Markdown links syntax (ยซ[shown text]( "the-tooltip")ยป - which outputs like a link with the URL to the thread you post in)?

    Oh ok I see now from my PC, my phone has rendered the unicode smiley with the (Android KitKat) emoji graphics.

    Just found a tip:

    The <abbr title="World Health Organization">WHO</abbr> was founded in 1948.

    ๐Ÿ™‚
    (Still it doesn't highlight anyhow - as to "hover me pleeeeeeeeeeease!":)
    Who knows how to make such a tooltip under a forum smilie? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Headings & paragraphs

    <p>WWF's goal is to:
    <q>Build a future where people live in harmony with nature.</q>
    We hope they succeed.

    Note: Browsers insert quotation marks around the q element.

    Both heading tags and paragraph ones work here.
    Tried "code", "pre", "kbd", "samp", "var" and "q" - not working.

  • The "`

    `" tag seems to be working here: 
    > 
    

    Computer code

    Keyboard input

    <samp>Sample text</samp>

    <var>Computer variable</var>

  • Just found out about 2 things:

    1. CSS ain't working here :faint:

    2. When you use HTML in your post, local Markdown marking ain't working within the elements (shown as plain keyboard input - like "**proper**" instead of "proper").

  • Ahem!

    What about those supposed "Markdown" "numbered lists"???

    The above post as if contains such one - but the item numbers ain't shown altogether...
    Let me try this:

    blabla

    blablabla

    ๐Ÿ˜• (those were "#" lines - what the hell?)

    I humbly propose we could either change the kit to something else - WORKING - or maybe do something about the existing one? Uh? :doh:

  • The leading hash mark was treated as identifying a header, you have to use actual numbers. Having said that, I've never had much luck with lists ...

  • Now on Firefox, I can see the numbers!
    Why didn't I with Chrome?

  • Now on Firefox, I can see the numbers!
    Why didn't I with Chrome?

    In Opera, I can see them too! <_<

  • Lists?

    Ahemmmm...

    • First item
    • Second item

    โฌ† A "bulleted" list with asterisks...

  • May I try a list, too?

    • Item one (dash space)

    • Item two the same

    • Item three same with empty line before

  • ^ Only the first one has a bullet in my Opera Dev25. Can anyone confirm?

  • ^ Only the first one has a bullet in my Opera Dev25. Can anyone confirm?

    Yes, but would you mind showing your input?

    • Asterix space

    • again, just in next line

    • again with empty line before

    • again with 2 empty lines

    • and again with 3 lines before

    Ok... have to wait 600 seconds... lets add dash-space lines:

    • dash space just after the normal text line

    • and in the next line

    • with an empty line in between

    • with 2 empty lines

    • with three empty lines

      • dash space dash space, one empty line before.
      • asterisk space asterisk space, directly after the previous entry
      • asterisk space dash space. It's silly, I know.
      • dash space asterisk space. That's enough.
    • dash space

    • dash space again

    • dash space with empty line

    - dash space
    - dash space again
    
    - dash space with empty line
    

    Yes, but would you mind showing your input?

    Actually, it was just like the items are named. Let's see if this works with the (pre)...
