Is there something I'm doing wrong? For the life of me everytime I post a question or answer, I can not figure out how to line break / return without the <p> tag. That's the only way to go to next line in the answer. Am I doing something wrong? or is this how it's supposed to work

Paragraphs

This:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.enterenterPraesent in metus diam.

Will produce this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

Praesent in metus diam.

Linebreaks

This:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.spacespaceenterPraesent in metus diam.

Will produce this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.
Praesent in metus diam.

  • haha that's cool!! any specific reason for using markdown? I've never seen it used before – user60812 Aug 7 '12 at 23:44
  • It's mostly to avoid HTML (although a small subset of HTML is allowed). People usually can't resist the urge to try stupid stuff when they find a textarea that allows HTML. – yannis Aug 7 '12 at 23:45
  • oh ye that makes sense, a comment/reply box with HTML on becomes a 1 ton big kid sandbox lol I have to remember this in the future good to know!! thanks – user60812 Aug 7 '12 at 23:47
