I just received an email about the first comment posted to this question at ask sage:

Dear niles,

ccanonc left a new comment for question "Enumerate isomrphic subgraphs of graph vertex labeled"


The link to "new comment" is just as I've posted it: <a>new comment</a>, with no href. Looking back, all of the "new comment" email has this problem.

UPDATE: Here's the original html source of the email; it looks like there is some href, but my email reader (Gmail) doesn't know what to do with it.

Message-ID: <20100917202852.11142.10862@localhost>


<p>Dear niles,</p>

<p>ccanonc left a <a href=3D"%
e-isomrphic-subgraphs-of-graph-vertex-labeled#comment-539">new comment</a>
for question "Enumerate isomrphic subgraphs of graph vertex labeled"</p>





EDIT 2: the <a> is still being interpreted by askbot, even inside <pre> </pre> . . . forwarding to Evgeny . . .

Will take a look at that on the weekend, looks like something is not right with the encoding of the message.

regarding the use of markdown - try using the "code" button instead tags. The button prefixes code lines with four spaces or backtics an inline snippet. I'll take a look at the markdown parser eventually - it's a separate library maintained by someone else. I'll do my best though.

I've been putting off fixing the bugs reported last week and a half because I was working on a new login system, which I'll hopefully deploy today (running tests now).

Indeed, highlighting the text and pressing the code button did work -- I simply assumed it was equivalent to `<pre>`, but apparently not.

sounds bad enough. Is that the literal html from your email? Maybe you can forward me some of those emails at
