It has some horrible code. We can easily fix it.

I don't get it. You really want to fix markdown? Why is this a Nikola bug?

I wanted to fix output from Markdown by regexps — we actually are doing something to this effect right now. The Markdown folk would probably disagree.

I had a look at this a couple of days ago. When used independently of Nikola, the Markdown module does output the correct code. I believe the issue may have something to do with using the codehilite extension with Markdown.

Just tested removing codehilite from the MARKDOWN_EXTENSIONS setting in, and the code formats properly. Adding codehilite back in breaks it again. This is running off a clean Nikola install and default blog settings (apart from adding .md to posts in

With codehilite:

<div class="code"><pre><span class="kt">void</span> <span class="nf">loop</span><span class="p">()</span>
<span class="p">{</span>
    <span class="n">xbee</span><span class="p">.</span><span class="n">send</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="n">tx64</span><span class="p">);</span>
    <span class="n">delay</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="mi">50</span><span class="p">);</span>
<span class="p">}</span>

Without codehilite:

<pre><code>void loop()
