Markdown parser not parsing asterisk/underscore after opening parentheses


(Aahan Krish) #1

This can’t be intended. The Markdown parser isn’t parsing asterisks ** and underscores _ right after the opening parentheses (.

Examples (bug fixed if these appear parsed):

  • I am a (good) boy.
    • This works: I am a (good but naughty) boy.
  • I am (an year) older.
    • This works: I am (by an year) older.

Has this been left unfixed due to any arising complications?


The markdown parser has problems with quotes too! Take a look…

Yes. *"Any other service"*? not really. Produces this:

Yes. “Any other service”? not really.


Asterisks/underscores right after quotes… See? (If the sentence below appears formatted, the bug’s been fixed.)

Yes. “Any other service”? not really.


Hard to explain, these are broken too:

  • **`Yes. “*Any other service*”? not really.`**

(Came across this when reporting the bug itself.)


Isn’t this entire sentence supposed to be italicized?

Note: Some note here.

I fixed (this) bug, but introduced ** this bug ** by mistake.
