Issue Type: Bug

Inline preview rendering of markdown content within block comments in JavaScript and TypeScript files is missing.

This appears to be a regression introduced in VS Code 1.40.x (still present in Insiders) that I couldn't find referenced in the change log? Feature made for happier reading and writing formatted TSDoc / JSDoc comments.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new document, set language mode to TypeScript or JavaScript.

  2. Paste the following code:

 * This block comment used to render markdown formatting inline, such as:
 * **bold**, _italic_, `inline code` and...
 * ```ts
 * // Syntax highlighted code blocks
 * const example = print('hello');
 * ```
  1. Expect the markdown within the code block to be formatted, but it is not

Repeating steps in Visual Studio Code 1.39.2 correctly renders preview of markdown within the block comment.
