Lists are broken

I have a list of things.

  1. This is the first item on the list.

It has several paragraphs.

I have a lot to say.

  1. This is the second item on the list. Note that I started it with "2."

Lighthouse correctly determines it's a list.

But it starts the count over at 1. -- ignoring I specifically typed 2. It should restart only when I use 1. again.

The fact it detected the 2 AND rewrote it to start a new list implies there's some intelligence beyond a simple 's/[0-9]+.(.*)/

  • \1<\/li>/'-like regular expression replacement.
  1. Oh look, it parsed my regular expression funny. Hmm.

  2. Will these issues be fixed? :-)

    Mark -

    The linebreaks are cause the issue. If you remove those, the numbers work as expected. You'll notice you get the same results if you use the Markdown Dingus - - if you put the exact content of your post into the dingus and preview.

    Well line breaks are needed for paragraphs, no?

    Though looking at that, I found the solution: manually indenting the following lines. I'll leave this as a note for anyone else who comes across this issue.
