Table in blockquotes

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a table.

  2. Add a quotation mark (Greater-than sign) before the first line of the table.

  3. Add a line beneath the table.

  4. Add a line break after the line below the table and add another line. E.g.:

    Me sample table
    > |a1|a2|
    |–|--|
    |b1|b2|
    Good for you

    And for me too

Expected result

The whole table and the line beneath the table is rendered as a blockquote. The line after the hard break renders out of the blockquote. See how it happens in Typora:

Actual result

The first > breaks the table in Obsidian:

Environment

  • Operating system: Windows 10 x64 Corporate 1909 18363.900
  • Obsidian version: 0.7.3
  • Using custom CSS: built-in light theme

Additional information

To achieve a result similar to Typora, one is required to put a > before each line of the text:
Me sample table
> |a1|a2|
> |–|--|
> |b1|b2|
> Good for you

And for me too

Funny thing is that the forum preview recognizes the first piece of code similarly to Typora.

More keywords: table, quote, blockquote, nested

There is no universal agreement on this part of the markdown spec. The markdown interpreter we use follows a different convention.

Me sample table
> |a1|a2|
> |--|--|
> |b1|b2|
> Good for you 
> …

And for me too

This works in preview mode.

For me, it appears that the less > I use in the text, the easier it is. Thanks for the reply, anyway.
