When putting a blockquote in a spoiler, the line(s) after the blockquote are not hidden; this does not seem to be the behaviour I would expect? Hovering over the spoiler reveals the hidden text as expected.

Markdown:

>! Line 1
>! <blockquote>Line 2</blockquote>
>! Line 3

Result (rendered):

Line 1

Line 2
Line 3

This isn't supported. Everything inside a spoiler block is treated as a single paragraph of text. If you want to use block elements inside of it, then you'll have to be explicit about making everything a block element, like this:

>! <p>Line 1</p>
>! <blockquote>Line 2</blockquote>
>! <p>Line 3</p>

Line 1

Line 2

Line 3

While doing this makes all of the text disappear as intended by the spoiler around it, it does still have the negative side-effect of putting empty paragraph at the beginning and end of the spoiler which make the block much larger, because again this is not supported.
