First presence of empty lines in quotes is ignored



  • ```
    line 1
    line 2 is followed by two empty lines

    line 3 <-- is over here
    line 4
    line 5 is followed by one empty line

    line 6
    line 7 is followed by two empty lines

    line 8
    line 9

    Code blocks in quotes are extremely flimsy. Any change can break the code block or the quote.
    But you probably already knew that. This is just an interesting case.


  • Not just inside code blocks after all.

    The empty line between the first two paragraphs is swallowed.
