Mastodon Glitch Edition/markup

from HTYP, the free directory anyone can edit if they can prove to me that they're not a spambot

GlitchSoc has the ability to format posts with limited subsets of HTML or Markdown, which does not seem to be documented anywhere. (Update: this feature is apparently available now on trunk Mastodon. It's not clear whether it originated there or was backported from Glitch.)

It has to be enabled on a per-client (per-user) basis via [Getting Started][App Settings][Compose box (tab)] -> check the "show content-type choice" checkbox. Once this is done, you should see a markup-selection icon between the "lock" icon and the "CW" icon, as seen below:

Note that apparently the only way to get strikethrough in a post is to use Markdown, since neither <s> nor <strike> seem to work in HTML mode.

Also, it appears that HTML codes work in Markdown mode as well.
