Description Robert Leverington 2007-03-03 15:21:20 UTC
When you add (for example) a time to a definition list:

;Blah Blah 16:30
:Blah Blah ok.

the colon on the first line breaks into a new line, nowiki has to be used to
solve this problem.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-03-04 01:48:45 UTC
What are we supposed to do?  Look ahead to the next line, or require the
definition definition delimiter to be on a new line?  The latter is probably
more consistent, but of course, it breaks reverse-compatibility.
Comment 2 Robert Leverington 2007-03-04 09:05:46 UTC
'^;[.*]$^:[.*]$'

'<dt>$1</dt>'.'/n/r'.'<dd>$2</dd>'
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-03-04 16:02:06 UTC
As I said, that kind of thing breaks reverse compatibility, so whether it will
make it in is questionable.  The current behavior is deliberate, although I
would be inclined to say not especially useful.
