Markdown heading levels not working

Reported by Stefan Doehla | March 3rd, 2022 @ 12:58 PM

My previously filed ticket seems to be not saved, thus just as a backup here agin (please mark as duplicate if I missed something).

The following Markdown





yields this result:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<style>body > img, blockquote >img { max-width: 100%; }
body { font-family: "Menlo"; font-size: 8.2pt; }
<meta http-equiv="x-dns-prefetch-control" content="off">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/xhtml; charset=utf-8">
div.markdown { white-space: normal; }
body { font-family: sans-serif; }
h1 { font-size: 1.4em; }
h2 { font-size: 1.2em; }
h3 { font-size: 1.1em; }

<body caret_uuid="D348A516-0ABC-4674-AFED-2A7B64EBB756"><div class="markdown">
<h1 data-sourcepos="1:1-3:0">H1</h1>
<h1 data-sourcepos="4:1-6:0">H2</h1>
<h1 data-sourcepos="7:1-9:0">H3</h1>
<span D348A516-0ABC-4674-AFED-2A7B64EBB756="0.500000" style="display:inline "></span><h1 data-sourcepos="10:1-11:4">H4</h1>



Note that the header levels are not correctly converted to HTML header levels. Also h4-h6 are not converted properly (but I guess they're part of both Markdown and HTML).

    • State changed from “new” to “closed”

    I believe the result is as expected. See documentation here.

    You can do this:

    # H1
    ## H2
    ### H3
    #### H4

    and more limited:

    Ah, I was living under a false assumption for such a long time, having used nested bulleted lists now for years. Thanks for hinting me and sorry for the extra work.
