@hynek suspicion correct. This is an issue - same with markdown which I can use here but most servers will strip out. As a poster you cannot guarantee how your post will be viewed across the network. But I guess that’s just the way it is

@s_gruppetta @hynek We figured out that mastodon.social does strip any markdown-related characters. But I do not know whether that’s due to the version (4.0.0rc3) used on mastodon.social, or that it is mastodon.social-specific. We noticed that on other servers running 3.5.3 the markdown characters were visible (and one could run a greasemonkey script to convert that to the stylized form).
