Related to, but believed not a duplicate of, List line break/spacing format issue.
Below is explained a rendering issue for MarkDown affecting many if not all SE sites.
Further, I seem to be finding additional issues related to rendering or parsing of MarkDown in SE as to deviate markedly and adversely from generic handling of MarkDown text.
What information can be provided, for now only about the issue described below, specifically regarding the following questions?:
- Is an official channel available to communicate such issues to SE staff responsible for development, marketing, or quality-assurance?
- Has any such channel been invoked for the issue?
- Has a response been offered that either acknowledges the issue or rejects the complaint?
Currently, Stack Exchange sites appear to format incorrectly the below Markdown content:
- List item. * Sublist item * Sublist item *Should be space above this line*. - List item.
The spacing between all items should be roughly uniform. In fact, the spacing immediately above the inner list is inappropriately expansive, whereas that immediately after it is inappropriately condensed.
As currently rendered by Stack Exchange: (Note: Since these comments originally appeared, system changes have been introduced, intending to mitigate the problems described. These improvements may be reflected in the formatting of text below.)
Should be space above this line.
