Okay guys, this one is bugging me, and I am hoping that I have not (yet again) not read something correctly in the specification. The Markdown in question is:
> [foo]: /url
Now, the “dingus” says this should be:
And I have been trying to figure out how. Mind you, some of it was during a power outage that we had here in the PNW, but I had the spec on my laptop, and just put my mind to figuring it out.
The Block Quote element I am in total agreement with. If the second line started with
> I would also be in agreement with it. But in the opening part for Block Quotes:
Laziness. If a string of lines Ls constitute a block quote with contents Bs , then the result of deleting the initial block quote marker from one or more lines in which the next non-whitespace character after the block quote marker is paragraph continuation text is a block quote with Bs as its content. Paragraph continuation text is text that will be parsed as part of the content of a paragraph, but does not occur at the beginning of the paragraph.
Doesn’t this imply that this should only occur with the continuation of a Paragraph element? The way I read it, if a Paragraph element hasn’t been opened, it cannot be parsed as part of the paragraph.
