    How did you get the asterisk to work? If I put an asterisk in text it makes everything that follows into bold text. As far as I've been able to see, you can't use an asterisk for a footnote on dkos. But you just did.

    thx.

        *No space

        * Or a space

        * Or a space and a 2nd spaced asterisk *

          Now watch what happens when one more line is added

          No space

          * Or a space

          * Or a space and a 2nd spaced asterisk *

          *No space plus an un-spaced following asterisk

          Conclusion: Everything after "*-nospace-ASCII" and before "ASCII-nospace-*" is bolded. Note: I typed two asterisks in a row to get a single one to appear. Note that the asterisk itself is not bolded.

          Conclusion conclusion: Asterisk use is sort of FUBAR on this blog.
