While answering questions, I found that the delimiter '>' for blockquotes on answers truncates newlines.
Refer to the following example.
I have typed one line here. This is has been typed on the next line
As you can see, the two separate lines have been stacked on one.
However, at times I like to make multiline quotes. Thanks to my background in CS, I achieve it using
<br> tags, like so -
This is the first line
This has been typed on the next line.
My question is, is there an easier way to write multiline comments, as typing
<br> in front of each line is cumbersome? Besides, it is not at all intuitive, and people without a technical background may not know how to achieve said result.
If it isn't possible, it is my humble request to change the way quotations work making it more intuitive to include multiline quotations.
