Whitelisted HTML tags are allowed in Markdown, but it seems that less are supported or they are handled differently now. For example, see https://sourceforge.net/adobe/flexsdk/wiki/Flex%204/ This probably happened when we upgraded Markdown recently. Check to see if its feasible to re-instate this support, particularly <div> tags with some styles which are useful for layout. If it's not practical, we don't necessarily have to do it.

  • Processing markdown-markup inside tags is an option that disabled by default in the current version of Markdown. We can easily enable it, but it requires the user to place markdown="1" attribute in each tag, which contains markdown-markup inside of it.

    We have two options here:

    • leave this as it is (requiring the user to provide mardown="1" attribute)
    • try to inject it automatically in a needed tags, but this may be error prone and badly maintainable.

    Thanks for the research. I've looked into it more myself to understand, and am going to turn on the markdown=1 support.

    Set to validation when done, we need to fix up the Adobe pages still.
