What are the guidelines for question and answer text? Can I format my text and should I use HTML?

John Zukowski



The best questions are ones that, when answered, will help others. We are not offering a technical support service -- we cannot design your application, debug your code or solve your homework problems. Please make sure your question is clear and concise, and please do not submit the same question to multiple FAQs.

As far as answers go, an answer should be sufficient to answer the question. Code snippets are usually helpful, especially to get a more complicated point across.

A subset of HTML tags is permitted in both questions and answers. Any other tags (like JavaScript or JSP) will be converted to HTML character escape sequences and will appear as literals in the output.
