This should work, but doesn't.

• Something. Now I want code to demonstrate it.

1+2+345+6

• It didn't format even though I used the 101010 button (indenting).

Hi, thanks. Turns out it is an acknowledged bug in the markdown2 library. Hopefully the author will fix it soon.  ( 2011-01-28 13:12:25 -0500 )edit

I think the problem is that the markup uses spaces to determine what should be part of the bulleted list, and what shouldn't. This is tricky when you also consider multiple paragraphs in the same bullet point. Here's some markup, and then a copy of the syntax that produced it:

• item one is short
• item two is long

and consists of multiple paragraphs

• this is another item

this is another paragraph within the same item

and this is a paragraph after the bulleted list

• another list
• I'll add code here by using the <pre> tag:
code_text_*

And here is the markup:

 * item one is short
* item two is long

and consists of multiple paragraphs
* this is another item

this is another paragraph within the same item

and this is a paragraph *after* the bulleted list

* another list
* I'll add code here by using the &lt;pre&gt; tag:
<pre>code_text_*</pre>


Note that the pre tag doesn't get syntax hilighting, but works otherwise

It is very fortunate that this very ticket was open on the markdown2 library just last week and it was accepted http://code.google.com/p/python-markdown2/issues/detail?id=13 I'll watch the progress on that. Thanks.  ( 2011-01-28 11:57:21 -0500 )edit
Great to know. I'd vote Evgeny's answer correct, but he didn't actually answer :)  ( 2011-01-28 20:54:39 -0500 )edit
What's the status on this? It still doesn't work on ask.sagemath :(  ( 2011-05-18 12:54:29 -0500 )edit
