This question already has an answer here:

How can I fix the excessive vertical spacing between "like:" and "cat.." below? Notice there is no empty line in the markdown, but an abyss in the rendering of the HTML.

Update: this answer gives a rather ugly workaround (it uses numbering by hand) to a similar issue. I can't find how to transpose that workaround to bullets, not make the long line starting with cat indent properly.

Update 2: this turns out to be a CSS bug-or-very-poor-choice, and a feature request as pointed in a comment.


Example

  1. Mammals

    like:

    • cat multidisciplinary study including sedimentologic, stratigraphic, isotopic, and palynological aspects in order to reconstruct the paleoenvironment and to evaluate biochronologic and paleogeographic implications.
    • cow
    • dog

    New faunal and stratigraphic evidence documents the validity of the North American Clarkforkian.

  2. Smurf


That is produced by this markdown:

Example

1. **Mammals**
