html, head and body tags disappeared, should i use some markup for code?

more options

You can HTML escape tags as entities "&lt;html&gt;" and use pre tags for formatting.

To play an MP3 file via an embed tag you need a plugin that supports MP3 files like the Gecko Media player

Linux hostname 3.15.1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 17 09:32:20 CEST 2014 x86_64 GNU/Linux

What's wrong with the markup? '1.' is displayed instead of number sign

If you start a line with a hash (#) then you create a numbered list.

Make sure that you show the KB article for Linux (click the Editing Tools button)
