    (I must admit that I had help on this one.)

    {This will also either demonstrate that HTML markup works in titles,

    or make me look like an idiot. ๐Ÿ™‚ }

    “This will also either demonstrate that HTML markup works in titles,or make me look like an idiot.”

    Neither, as it turns out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    HTML markup won’t activate in thread titles,

    but it won’t appear in them either.

    (I should’ve explained this a long time ago…)

    (I must admit that I had help on this one.)

    And therefore no assumptions should be made about my general

    level of knowledge or scholarship based on this post.

    Will you fast this Thursday and Friday?

    They were the sixth and seventh of Cheshvan, on one of which

    (different versions exist – vov and zayin are quite similar…)

    Tzidkiyahu Hamelech’s sons were killed (I think it was in his presence), and then he was blinded. Some people fast on this day, or at least they used to. Also, since the date is uncertain, perhaps they would fast on both days.

    And will you be mashlim Friday?

    In a similar case, the Shaarei Teshuvah says

    not to complete the fast on Friday.

    [For future readers: This was posted on Wednesday, October 29, 2014.]

    This was so that the Hebrew date of those days could be determined.

    This will also either demonstrate that HTML markup works in titles,or make me look like an idiot.

    I tried to make mashlim italic in the title. I assumed

    that either “mashlim” or “<em>mashlim</em>” would appear on the main page.

    Neither, as it turns out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    HTML markup won’t activate in thread titles,

    but it won’t appear in them either.

    Self-explanatory.

    Randomex:

    Should I take this as a sign of something good to come? If you get what I mean. No pressure though.
