The help page for what is on-topic contains the following line:

[Requests to rephrase](http://meta.writers.stackexchange.com/q/535/26) something - a few sentences, or even a single sentence. 

Presumably when edited (by Neil Fein? He is user 26 as indicated by the share link), the MarkDown was not recognized.

Thanks for spotting this. I've fixed it. (I hadn't realized that the Help Center pages use plain old HTML, not markdown -- and I'll bet Neil didn't notice when making that edit, either.)

  • Apparently sometimes when Markdown just plain won't work, HTML will do the job. Thanks for spotting this. – Neil Fein Sep 16 '13 at 1:49
  • I only knew that HTML would work because there was other HTML in the page. It wasn't at all obvious that this editing interface, uniquely?, has different rules. – Monica Cellio Sep 16 '13 at 1:50
