A reference to the following identifier is not correctly processed by markdown.


The problems is that the function findEmphasisChar() in markdown.cpp only checks correctly for a single character emphasis token to end the emphasis part.

In my opinion it should check for a emphasis token of the same size as the start token.

I've modified this function in the attached file (based on svn revision 833) by adding a parameter to indicate the size of the token.
