Can anyone explain how does this silly code markup behave? Help is insufficient, because I'm absolutely unable to create a line break in marked code block, whether in regular 4 spaces indent, whether in inline code markup - and it looks nasty!. Help!

Formatting as code sample doesn't seem to work immediately after bulleted lists. I edited the respective post and created "faked" bulleted lists.

  • Ok, I already thought that I'm going crazy...Thanks!

    @an_ant, @lockstep: It does work if you indent by 4 additional spaces, as Ryan already mentioned in a comment. @an_ant: I edited your post accordingly. Dec 30, 2010 at 13:21
  • @Hendrik Vogt: Now, that looks nice!

I don't really see there is an issue. For example

The next line is empty (not even four spaces)!

  • Follow the "nasty" link and see how it looked like before lockstep made his edit. That's what an_ant meant. Dec 30, 2010 at 13:34
  • @Hendrik. The way the question was phrased, it looked like he meant in general. However, it seems that all is solved now in any case :-)
