Description Tisza Gergő 2010-02-11 23:32:06 UTC
Try selecting a text which includes a newline, and clicking the bold button. Several bugs occur:
- the ''' marks will only be placed at the beginning and end of selection, which will not produce the expected result (one could say that is a bug with the parser rather than with the edit interface, but that would still leave the problem of double newlines).
- the newline turns into a double newline.
- newlines are inserted to the beginning and end of the selection.
(FF3.5/WinXP)

This behavior is even more counter-intuitive with lists; for example, I would expect

a
b
c

to turn into

* a
* b
* c

when selected and listified.

Maybe the bold button should operate on each line individually.

That's weird, I'll look into that.
