{errors} is for questions regarding or including compilation or similar errors.

Error messages which mostly show (La)TeX code should be marked as a code block (use code fences ``` before and after the error message, or indent with 4 spaces or the {} button). Do not use a quotation (>).

Error messages which mostly show file paths and no code, like File not found or similar errors, should be placed between <pre> and </pre> HTML tags to avoid wrong syntax highlighting. Otherwise in e.g. c:\localtexmf\latex the two directories would be highlighted as macros because of the preceding backslashes \. Alternatively you can use code fences with the lang-none specifier to switch off syntax highlighting, i.e., ```lang-none at the start of the error message and a normal ``` (without language specifier) at the end.
