I’m trying to implement a parser for Markdown in a language called Xojo.
I think there is some ambiguity in example 2:
The spec says this should output:
The spec states:
in contexts where whitespace helps to define block structure, tabs behave as if they were replaced by spaces with a tab stop of 4 characters.
And slightly later in the same section it states:
In the following case
>is followed by a tab, which is treated as if it were expanded into three spaces. Since one of these spaces is considered part of the delimiter,
foois considered to be indented six spaces inside the block quote context, so we get an indented code block starting with two spaces
Doesn’t this mean that the output of example 2 should be:
I.e: why is the tab before foo not being expanded at all? This seems confusing.
