Highlight-based quoting ruby text messes up formatting

Continuing the discussion from Inline language markup? (language learning site):

Not sure if this would be considered a bug or a request for enhancement. Basically, when you quote ruby text, the quote doesn’t show up correctly. For example:


If you quote this you’ll get something like:

Could this be updated in some way so the quote includes the ruby tags for proper formatting? Or is that consider an “advanced” quote that will only work on full post quoting?


Yeah I would like us to implement this it should be straightforward … our JS implementation of HTML -> Markdown has a minor oversight.

@vinothkannans can you add to your list?


Awesome. To add one thing, I noticed that often furigana (rt tagged text) above the last character won’t get highlighted and therefore doesn’t get quoted (but it should). It probably won’t be a big deal to handle since that’s all within the last ruby tag anyway, but it’s something to keep in mind when implementing.


OK, just keep in mind, this is not a major priority for us but I think we should get it done over the next month or two. It is assigned out.
