I have finally figured out how to post code after several months of trying to post things in these forums. I was hoping that the great oracles in charge of these forums might "see the light" to help others who struggle with this.
Under this Post Box, there is a statement of "Allowed tags" with a list and instructions to:

First of all, I had to learn what a backtick was. On US/English keyboards, it's that little mark on the tilde ~ key next to the 1 key. On other nationalized and language keyboards - who knows where it resides and even IF it resides. I can't even find a character code for it.
Second, do I use this when I enter code, or when I want code to show. There is no explanation so I've been putting it around every piece of code to format the content of the post, and it makes the code show up. Huh?
Third, the example implies that the tag should be marked as
strong . But it"s not. So what is it? I must not be the first to comment on this.
So is it:
or is it
2. < strong >?
Well, the answer is number 1 but it has been a painful learning experience.
Can whoever is in charge of the forums please change the statement so it reads:
Put tag code you want to be visible in between backticks such as:
It would really help all everyone to have this be specific. Thanks.
