I've fixed some bugs in PHP Markdown Extra 1.1b1, the most important
ones relating to footnotes. Thank you for the feedback.

So here you can download the second beta:


1.1b2 (21 Sep 2006)

* Changed the space before footnote backlinks to an unbrekable space
`&#160;` at the suggestion of John Gruber.

* Fixed the out-of-order footnote problems which were occuring when
were refered to by markers from various block-level constructs.

* Fixed a bug where footnotes definition were taking the text
them even though that text had no indentation.

* Footnotes are now prevented from containing a reference to another

* Small change to the syntax for abbreviation definitions.
Abbreviations are
now defined like this:

*[SGML]: Standard Generalized Markup Language

The asterisk was previously after the brakets, making it harder to
distinguish from link references.

* Abbreviations are now correctly surrounded by `<abbr>` tags when
around punctuation marks.

* Arranged badly nested emphasis to produce mostly the same result as
PHP Markdown. Still not ideal, but better.
