remarkup literal block requires text on beginning line
Closed, ResolvedPublic



this is at least odd:

This is **not** literal, but the %%% are swallowed.

Result (the "not" is bold, the outer %%% are not visible):

This is **not** literal, but the %%% are swallowed.

%%% This **is** literal.

Result (asterisk, asterisk, "is", asterisk, asterisk):

This **is** literal.

I'd expect both variants worked, or at least the %%% survive to make it clear that they were not parsed as literal block.


Event Timeline

This rule is constructed very awkwardly and I'd sort of prefer to remove it entirely, but I think we can technically fix this without really disrupting things.

The %%% on its own line is sufficient to both start and terminate the block. This is silly and presumably never intended.

It looks like the existing test cases in master fail on PHP 7.1, presumably because of T10929, so that needs to be fixed before I can fix this.

This is probably the fix:
