Is the depth limitation of bullet lists a markdown feature? Or was it introduced in the markdown processor rewrite? I'm talking about:

  • data with
    • sub nodes
    • and sub-sub-nodes
    • and so on

which is:

 - data with
  - sub nodes
   - and sub-sub-nodes
    - and so on

I've seen people struggle to describe object graphs etc. I see it behaves the same here, but is this one of those cases where following the original spec is unnecessarily limiting?

Perhaps using code (formatted via prettify) will be a better choice to represent object graphs/treeviews? You've demonstrated it in your post :) – o.k.w Feb 7 '10 at 10:09
Look like you need more spaces before each "-" to get the indention correct. Edit Jeff's post and compare his indentation (4 spaces) to yours (1 space). I did a bit of experimentation and you need at least 3 spaces to get the indentation correct. – ChrisF Feb 7 '10 at 12:08
