I copied some xml to an answer, and I formatted it as code, but it hides everything between the < and > braces.

Answer is here.

What did I do wrong?

1 Answer 1


This is a issue because the code is being placed after a bullet list.

There is a Meta Stack Exchange post that deals with how to bypass the issue.

There are several ways to work around it, but I updated the answer to use 8 spaces instead of the standard 4 spaces for code and it now is displaying properly.
