Forgive me if this has been discussed before - this is my first post to the
list - so I've missed prior discussion.

A few strange bugs I've came across while using Markdown on the GAWDS
website CMS:

The DTD is XHTML Strict: to validate blockquote requires an additional block
level element around content, e.g.,

<blockquote cite="http//mywebsite.com">
<p>Blah, blah, blah and so on..</p>

This bugs seems to confuse PHP Markdown and it adds additional paragraph
tags. If I leave absolutely no space between all my tags I seem to be able
to get around it. There is an example of this bug on the home page:

Markdown adds additional paragraph tags in some of the other pages, e.g., at
the foot of the content in these pages (i.e., just prior to comment form):


In the second example paragraphs are added either side of a closing div -

I'm not sure exactly what is triggering it on these pages - could be the
definition list tags or horizontal rules?

All the best,
p.s. Thanks for the scripts. :-)
