Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

<div>Example code</div>

You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you. If anything screws up, contact us and we can fix it up for you.

*May or may not contain any actual "CSS" or "Tricks".
