if you use the "Quote" button then it can sometimes cock it up - it's far better just to hand-type in the tags

do you see what you're doing?...

sometimes it's best to mess around with the same post using the edit feature once you've posted it...and if all else fails...delete the thing and start again

another feature is the grey tabs above the window you type in...

There's also the Preview button at the bottom of the page, next to the Submit button, which means that you can check that your post looks right before you submit it

There are numerous reasons for the (bulleted) list tag, but unfortunately,
  • no one apart from geeks knows how to use it, and
  • too many people would cock it up
