Summary0022167: Markdown: poor handling of legacy multi-level quoted text
Description

When rendering quoted text with multiple levels of indentation, the markdown is not dealing well with multiple levels of indentation without newlines between levels

> > some text
>  more text

Renders as:

some text
more text

This is normal based on the current CommonMark spec due to the so-called Laziness rule, but it is a problem when rendering legacy text in Mantis.

Ideally, I would expect the above to render like this:

some text

more text

TagsNo tags attached.

I think its related to 0022172
as line breaks are not treated as block separators, the second line follows the previous indentation.

This matches the specs and GitHub has similar behavior. Hence, I would say this is not an issue. As discussed, there will be cases where old text will need to be updated to look right with Markdown.

Lets always test on GitHub as a reference implementation + Markdown specs before reporting behavior as incorrect.
