I've created a Chrome, Firefox, and Thunderbird extension that allows you to write email in Markdown (in Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or Thunderbird) and then convert to HTML before sending. If someone sends you raw Markdown it won't render it for you, but it lets you send rendered Markdown to others. Hope it helps. https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here

This Digital Inspiration blog post helped me out. Basically, you can copy content from any web page and paste it into the Gmail rich text editor. The editor will do its best to keep the formatting.

I just checked and currently it is not possible to do that, on the table itself. There's however a "hack" option available: add a table in a table, see screenshot: See example doc I've created: table in a table If you set the color of the grid lines to be white, than it will fade away. It will also give you flexibility to position the table off-center. ...

To add a newline, simply type Shift+Enter. This will insert a newline character (thus making a new line) rather than enter, which causes the form to submit. Note that in some cases, Facebook strips newline characters, and it isn't consistent. For example, you can type newlines into status updates, and it will show the line breaks on your wall and in the ...

Create the table in Word then save the document as 'Single File Web Page'; select and copy the table ( Ctrl + C ); paste into your Gmail message ( Ctrl + V ). It brings across the borders, shading, font size, etc. Column width appears to be determined by the number of characters in the column.

Warning: this is a very self-serving answer so, beware. When we were building Stack Overflow Careers CV entry we looked at all the web forms out there and tried to synthesize the best parts of each. I was surprised how few good web form examples there really were. I feel our team built what is, in my humble opinion, one of the best web form implementations ...

GitHub's gist service has a rather neat embedding tool and recognises loads of different languages. I've use this to embed code snippet occasionally. Also anything based around GeSHi works great, I've had good experiences with the CodeColorer plugin for wordpress.

Sadly, this seems impossible. I tried to see if I could create a script that would copy paragraph heading styles from one document to another, but there seems to be no API for getting style attributes for a heading style. There might be a slight chance you could get something working by using only custom styles, that is, defining your very own Heading ...

When adding a comment in a new-style group, there is no Comment button; you just press Enter to submit the comment. You can press Shift-Enter to insert a new line. I have only seen this in the new-style groups. Old-style groups, as well as profiles and Pages, still use the Comment button, at least for me. However it may be that Facebook is planning to ...
