Markup/Formatting problem in a comment

I don't seem to be able to get the formatting/markup right in my comment at https://developer.mbed.org/users/igorsk/notebook/mbed-memory-usage/?page=1#comment-1480.

The edit post panel does not present me with the "Editing tips" link or the "show preview" button, and the result ignores all my attempts to format the code with <<code>> and <</code>>. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your help.

You are putting <<code>> and <</code>> each on their own line? e.g.
<<code>>
Your code
<</code>>
should give

Your code
while failing to do that breaks it e.g.
<<code>>
Your code<</code>>
results in

<<code>> Your code<</code>>

That's the normal cause of problems but in that situation I would expect to see the word code in yellow.


There isn't anywhere in there that has {{{ or << at the start of a line for any reason?

As a last resort you could try {{{ at the start and }}} at the end (again, each on their own line) to disable all format code parsing.

Thanks for the response Andy. Yes, I did put the <<code> and <</code>> on their own separate lines and I also tried the {{{ to disable formatting. It is as if it is ignoring the markup directives altogether.
