I have an answer that I want to use a block quote to cite and outside reference. That reference is a bulleted list.

Pretty sure I have seen this before but I cannot find anyone using it.

How can I use a numbered or bulleted list inside block quotes?

You don't need HTML:

  • a markdown
  • list in quotes

Even with numbers:

  1. more
  2. less

    The blank line before the beginning of the list is critical. – Michael Crenshaw Jan 29 '18 at 21:29

Kept on testing and figured out one solution to my issue. I am used to using > but for this I should have be using tags.

Code

<blockquote>
<li>Only applying glue to the mortise of a mortise and tenon joint is a bad idea
<li> Excessive clamping force can weaken the joint strength by up to 20%
<li> A very smooth scraped surface is just as good, if not better than a sanded surface, as long as not clamped excessively hard
<li> Gaps in a joint, as long as they are filled with glue, do not aversely affect joint strength.
