Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The following:

* item
 * subitem
* item
* item

Correctly formats to:

  • item
    • subitem
  • item
  • item

However, if I want the list to be spaced by adding spaces after the entries, then the following:

* item

 * subitem

* item

* item

Incorrectly formats to :

  • item

    • subitem
  • item

  • item

Notice the missing newline after the subitem.

* item

 * subitem

<!-- ->

* item

* item
  • item

    • subitem

  • item

  • item
