I don't know what character encoding this page uses. Like you, I haven't been able to figure it out. It could probably do with replacing.

I have just been working on improving the database today. I changed the itemids for your Chinese translations, and I modified the script for listing links to use any language (instead of just English) when listing the pages by a specified author. So, when you go to your profile page and click on "Items this person authored", it will actually list the pages you authored instead of not listing them until someone realizes he should select Chinese and try again.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>
